These Starfish shaped blooms are a remarkable addition to the garden. The petals are cream with hints of gold, overlaid with a marvellous purple pattern. The decadent, heavily ruffled edges are a blend of bronze and gold. The flowers have a sweet, vanilla perfume.
The blooms open in succession on a multi branched stem. Blooms 5cm across with two to three branches per corm.
These exotic blooms are surprisingly easy to grow and will gradually multiply in the right conditions. They are endemic to the African Cape and adore hot dry summers and wet winters. Plant into a moderately fertile, well drained soil, in a full sun to semi shade position free of frost. They can be grown in pots, garden beds or rockeries. You can use a half strength liquid fertiliser every other week in growth.
