ROMULEA MACOWANII ALTICOLA
Dazzling golden flowers erupt from tight clusters of thin leaves very late in the season when most others have finished flowering, giving this plant extra value. This very pretty flower from the mountains of South Africa will do best in a warm scree or sheltered rockery, or even better in a container of gritty compost where the bulbs can slowly expand each year.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
