HABRANTHUS TUBISPATHUS YELLOW
A distant relative of the enormous, showy, florist's bulbs, this dwarf African mountain gem has the same opulent regal look as its larger brethren! Beautiful flared golden goblets, delicately pencilled in crimson, open in springtime. Makes a stunning addition to a protected raised bed, or even better in a pot where it can be taken indoors to admire its perfection.
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.
