A vigorous species from winter rainfall areas in South Africa, on lowland flats near the coast. It flowers
in early winter and is vigorous and fairly cold tolerant for me.
Last winter the flower stems were twisted and distorted by the sheet of black plastic I put over them as frost protection.
The species varies from orange through scarlet to dark red. This plant is a from collected seed (George, S.A.)
with rather pale red flowers selected by Rupert Bowlby.
