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 very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
