With a vast array of flower colours, this is one of the most rewarding Cape winter-growing bulb to cultivate. Strong stems arising from two strap-like lanceolate leaves hold a dense array of pretty tubular flowers in all shades of purples mauves and maroon.
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.
