Description

Extremely rare and exceedingly beautiful, this gorgeous, and almost unknown plant, can grow up to more than a meter tall. It has been described as "almost Dierama-like”"in habit, but, coming from a winter rainfall area of South Africa, it can perform better in wet conditions than many Dieramas do. A vigorous grower, it is summer deciduous, and during this period plants do not require water.

Sowing Advice

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.
