Tufts of slender grass-like leaves emerge from this bulb just before the flowers bloom in the summer and fall. Most of the year the plant just looks like a little green grass with clumps growing up to about 9" tall and 12" wide. The bright pink flowers have dark stamens and wavy petals and look like miniature Amaryllis blooms.

Small, autumn flowering bulb from South Africa.

Has slim, grass like, mid green leaves which are often evergreen but can be herbaceous. Bears rounded unbels of slim petalled, pink flowers with wavy petal margins. Each petal has a slightly darker pink stripe down the middle.

Flowers August-October, they flower best when part of a congested clump. It will happily multiply rapidly in the right spot.

Likes a very well drained soil in full sun, it's native habitat is scree and other well drained areas.

Very nearly frost hardy and performs best in a cold greenhouse in areas which receive winter frosts.

Sow seeds in containers as soon as they are ripe at 50-60F
