Lachenalia longituba (Polyxena longituba)


Lachenalia longituba. Used to be called Polyxena longituba. It has two or three long lance-shaped channeled leaves and small pale lilac flowers with a darker lilac central keel and a longer tube than some of the other species. It blooms in the fall. 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: Ex Hort. Harvest: August 2022
