Whiteheadia bifolia (Massonia bifolia)


Whiteheadia bifolia (Hyacinthaceae). This is a plant from arid winter rainfall areas of Southern Namibia, Namaqualand and the Western Cape. The inflorescence has a sour perfume and is produced in the middle of two large eliptical leaves. The robust cluster of green flowers within prominent green bracts has a sculpted appearance. Sowing: seeds are sown 3-4 mm below the soil surface in mid-autumn in the same medium recommended for mature bulbs. Take care not to sow too thickly to prevent the occurrence of damping-off fungi, and water the seedlings with a fine spray every few days. Germination of fresh seeds occurs within two to three weeks. Locality: Nardouwsberg. Harvest: October 2023
