Babiana purpurea pink (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Babiana purpurea pink. (Iridaceae) It is an erect stemmed plant that grows up to 30cm high. The leaves are lanceolate, pleated and hairy. The flowers are scented and vary in color from mauve to purple-pink and appear in early to mid summer. It is fast becoming a rare plant. Sowing: Seeds are sown in autumn, in deep pots, seed trays or raised seed beds, in the same medium recommended for adult corms. The seeds should be sown thinly to prevent overcrowding and the development of damping-off fungi, and kept moist by regular watering using a watering can fitted with a fine rose cap. Seedlings should remain undisturbed for two years. Locality : Botrivier. Harvest : December 2023
