Lachenalia comptonii


Lachenalia comptonii (Hyacinthaceae) It is indigenous to South Africa and grows in the winter rainfall areas. They produce 2 leaves that are hairy. The white bellshaped flowers are highly scented and have purple filaments. Sowing: Seed is best sown in autumn in deep seed trays or pots in a sterilized medium of equal parts fine compost or loam, and river sand. Sow the seed thinly to prevent overcrowding and fungal infection, and to allow sufficient room for each seedling’s bulb to develop. Cover with a thin layer of sand, and keep moist and shaded. Germination should occur within five weeks. Locality: Komsberg. Harvest: December 2023
