Description

Large, pleasantly-scented yellow flowers open in early in summer, the perfume being especially overwhelming at night time. The petals have attractive green stripes down their centres and open in flat-topped racemes on long, pale-green stalks that stand erect. This lovely South African native plant is easy to grow and should be hardy, as it is found in the Cape area at Witteberg growing at altitudes up to 2200m. It makes a superb warm-garden plant and is equally happy in a pot.

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.
