Lachenalia latimerae (100 seeds)


12 in stock

Lachenalia latimerae (Hyacinthaceae) Slender green stems, purplish at the tips, bear abundant, downward-facing, bell-flowers of soft white with protruding, white anthers which create an effect like a halo around the spikes. 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: Oudtshoorn. Harvest: October 2023
