Honey-scented pale to deep lilac flowers appear between lance shaped channeled leaves. Well suited to rockeries or good for display in small pots, this plant is native to the Western Cape Province in South Africa where it grows on coastal granite and limestone outcrops.
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.
