Sparaxis grandiflora ssp acutiloba (100 seeds)


8 in stock

Sparaxis grandiflora ssp acutiloba. It differs from grandiflora with its yellow flowers. Its tepal tips are narrower than some of the others, probably giving rise to the subspecies name. There are sometimes dark markings at the tepal bases. Sowing: Seed is sown in autumn, thinly, in deep (min. 10 cm) seed trays, to allow for root development. The soil medium should be well drained, a recommended mix being 2 parts sand: 2 parts compost: 1 part loam or equal parts sand and compost, and the seeds should be planted 3-4 mm deep, covered with clean sand and kept moist and lightly shaded. Locality: Piketberg. Harvest: January 2024
