Description

Unlike most lachenalias, these bright yellow urn-shaped flowers are born upright and only just push above the rosettes of strap-shaded leaves. These dwarf plants, from wet sandy flats in the south western Cape, are also ideal for pot culture, this species flowering over an extended period, stretching from the first week in June to the second week in October.

Sowing Advice

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.
