These Starfish shaped blooms are a sight to behold. The petals are cream with a hint of gold and overlaid with a marvellous purple pattern. The edge of the petals blends to bronze and gold and is heavily ruffled.
The blooms open in succession on a multi branched stem. Blooms 5cm across, 2-3 stems per corm.
These exotic blooms are surprisingly easy to grow. 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. They can be grown in pots, garden beds or rockeries. Half strength liquid fertiliser every other week in growth.
Foliage emerges in autumn. It is thick and fleshy.
