Lachenalia suaveolens


Lachenalia suaveolens. Growing from 16 to 40 cm with 1 or 2 lanceolate leaves, it has spreading light to deep pink to purple flowers without pedicels with dark maroon markings and recurved apices on the lower tepals with narrow, bright white margins. 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: Nardouwsberg. Harvest: November 2023
