Cyrtanthus falcatus

One of the most splendid species in the genus from vertical cliffs at up to 1800m in the Drakensberg, South Africa. Heads of comparatively large and heavily pendulous flowers are borne from a 'shepherd's crook' stem just as the leaves emerge in spring, opening pale but maturing to a rich orange-red with a picotee rim. Takes quite considerable frost if grown in well-drained soil, this is normally given alpine house conditions in the UK to avoid excessive winter wet. Plant with the bulb neck fully exposed. An old Jim Holmes collection from the 1960's.

Pot size: 2L
