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 very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
