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 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.
