This species is one of the most admired flowering bulbs of the winter-rainfall South African desert. It is a piece of art of plant symmetry, with perfectly flat and wide leaves with round-tips and the inflorescence is a gorgeous sphere of glossy pink flowers.
Keep dry all summer, and leaves will come back as fall sets in. The genus Brunsvigia is found in different areas of South Africa and it is sought after by collectors because of its beauty, slowness, and resistance.
Our plants belong to the area of Clanwilliam. These bulbs are now about four years old, sown from seeds in 2017.
