Sparaxis are bulbous perennials from the Cape Floral Kingdom in South Africa. They flower in profusion in the spring with a dazzling display of colour. Sparaxis Mixed in a hybrid cultivated form with a mix of star-shaped flowers in red, pink, orange and white in May to June/July. Flowers sit over sword shaped leaves on wavy stems, growing to a height of 30-40cm. Plants are particularly well suited to growing in Mediterranean style gardens or in containers.
Sparaxis grows best in a sunny sheltered spot and well drained soil. This is a just-hardy bulb and the planting time depends on your conditions. In warmer UK and Mediterranean gardens, plant the bulbs directly into the soil in autumn from September to December. In colder, more frost prone gardens either plant in containers in autumn and keep somewhere protected or plant in the spring in April/May.
