Lachenalia

Lachenalia is a broad genus of showy small to medium sized bulbous plants native in South Africa and Nambia. Most species make broad, basal, sometimes spotted leaves and short inflorescences with tubular flowers in shades of white, pale green, yellow, orange, red to dark violet. All species are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in full sun throughout the year. During dormany keep plants rather dry and in winter at a minimum of some 10°C. Excellent in a frostfree greenhouse or wintergarten, for their size they can be grown in rather small pots on window sills as well.
Sow seeds flat in any well drained substrate in full sun at some 20°C throughout the year.
20 seeds per package.
