My son was given this plant a couple of years ago, by an elderly lady, but we don't know it's name..
All he does is water it...It lives in his fernery and gets dappled shade.......the leaves are a wonderful glossy green.
The pic is from this morning so it flowers in Winter.
Anyone recognize this?
Top marks, Lucas......it's a very pretty thing...Pete wants more of them..we will try the propagation methods on the net....couldn't wait for seed...lol
Velthemia capensis (or close relation, B. bracteata) come from South Africa.
The bulb plants can be brought in small pots at $7.50 each from The Diggers Club, and sent via mail order to you. Diggers web site is worthwhile looking at...sells water-wise plants : www.diggers.com.au
