Neutral Baa On Dec 7, 2001, Baa wrote:

A cormous perennial from South Africa.

Has linear, long, mid green, basal leaves and may have 1-2 smaller thin leaves on the lower part of the flowering stem. Bears cup shaped, yellow, orange or pinkish flowers.

Flowers April-August.

Likes a well drained, fertile soil in full sun. Only hardy down to 35F so will need winter protection. Can also be grown in a cool greenhouse.

KEEP IT AWAYS FROM BOUNDARY FENCES AS IT IS TOXIC TO LIVESTOCK.
