Coleonema pulchellum dark pink. It is an erect, evergreen shrub and reaches a height of 0.8 to 1 m. It forms a single stem at the base, from where numerous slender, erect branches grow. The leaves are aromatic and needle-like and about 4 to 5 times as long (8-10 mm) as broad (0.8 mm). The petiole is 1 mm long and the teeth at the leaf tip point upwards. The flowers are solitary, terminal on short branchlets or axillary on reduced branchlets, often crowded towards the tips of the branches. The flowers are pink, often white and star-shaped. Sowing: The optimum time for sowing is during autumn. Seed are cleaned and sown on a prepared medium of sand and compost in equal parts in a seed tray. Cover seed with a thin layer of bark and water. Place seed trays in a covered area with good light and ventilation. Keep seed trays damp and germination will take place within 1 to 2 months. Seedlings are pricked out when four true leaves have developed.  Locality: George. Harvest: January 2024
