ZEPHYRANTHES MINIMA

Description

White flowers, varyingly marked with thin red lines, open on tiny stems over unobtrusive, thin, thread-like foliage. Despite its small scale and size this vigorous plant grows well in almost any well-drained, fertile soil with a dry summer rest. Re-wetting in autumn will also produce new flowers. The miniature scale of this uncommon species from Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay is amazing, and it might do best in a trough or small pot where you are able to appreciate its beauty.

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.
