Veltheimia bracteata – Forest Lily

This is a winter growing bulbous plant, flowering in spring to a height of 60cm before a brief period of summer dormancy. Dense raceme of tubular pink flowers on a long stem, above glossy wavy-edged strap-like basal rosette.

This plant requires so little maintenance, yet grows in shade and provides interest in winter through spring. And it is almost evergreen, apart from a brief period of dormancy in high summer.
