Hesperantha pauciflora


Hesperantha pauciflora. (Iridaceae) Pink Eveninglily. The flowers can range from pink to purple and very rarely yellow. The flowers are 20-25 mm across and unlike the other evening flowers (within the Hesperantha group) they open from midday to late afternoon. The leaves are usually sword shaped and pale green. Sowing: Seed is sown in autumn, thinly, in deep (min. 10 cm) seed trays, to allow for root development. The soil medium should be well drained, a recommended mix being 2 parts sand: 2 parts compost: 1 part loam or equal parts sand and compost, and the seeds should be planted 3-4 mm deep, covered with clean sand and kept moist and lightly shaded. Locality: Villiersdorp. Harvest: November 2023
