Erica patersonii (100 seeds)


2 in stock

Erica patersonii. It is an erect, sparsely branched shrub growing up to 1 m tall. The branches are densely covered with tufts of dark green, needle-like leaves. The bright, golden yellow, waxy, tubular flowers are arranged in closely packed spikes on the middle to upper section of the stem. The flowering stem resembles corn on the cob, which gives it its common name, mielie heath. Branching occurs mainly at the base of the stem and is woody and often bare. Sowing: Seed should be sown in autumn and treatment with smoke will improve germination, resulting in a higher number of seedlings. Locality: Clanwilliam. Harvest: August 2023
