Very attractive Freesia-like plants with a mix of flowers in early summer, from May to June/July. These plants originate in Southern Africa where the baboons enjoy eating the corms, hence the name! Plants grow strap-like leaves and then lots of flowers on each upright stem, growing to a height of 20-30cm. Good for sunny sheltered borders and containers. Good cut flowers.
Baboon Flowers grow best in sun to part shade and fertile well drained soils. In warmer, sheltered gardens they can be grown in the border if they are heavily mulched in winter and kept in well drained soils. Otherwise grow in pots and/or lift the bulbs in autumn and replant in spring.
Pack of 10 bulbs. Plant in March and April directly into the ground or into containers. Planting instructions are printed on the packet.
