Lachenalia paucifolia (Polyxena paucifolia)


Lachenalia paucifolia (Polyxena paucifolia) Honey-scented pale to deep lilac flowers appear between lance shaped channeled leaves. Well suited to rockeries or good for display in small pots, this plant is native to the Western Cape Province in South Africa where it grows on coastal granite and limestone outcrops. 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: Vredenburg. Harvest:  July 2023
