Description

These sizeable and quite sumptuous flowers are formed like a goblet made of three curved, bright yellow petals which have a series of darker red bands near the base. This attractive receptacle is filled with hairs which have clubbed ends, and at the deepest part lie the deep purple anthers. Coming from California, these plants do best in a well-drained warm position.

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.
