Romulea Subfistulosa 10 Seeds, A South African Bulbous Ornamental Garden Plant

The Plant Attraction


Romulea Subfistulosa

This South African bulb is easy to grow. It produces clumps of bright green, upright, slender leaves that are about 8-10" tall. Over time, the bulbs multiply to form a sizable colony. A carpet of crimson color with a contrasting yellow center with black marking. The spring-blooming flowers that have a gorgeous satin sheen are carried on stems that are shorter than the leaves. They're about 1½-2½" wide and consist of 6 petals that flare outwards at the tips and are fused at the base to form an open cup shape.

It prefers a sunny spot with good drainage. It needs a dry period after flowering, so there’s no need for water in the summer after flowering. The bulbs will rot if they're in a completely waterlogged soil for prolonged periods of time in the winter. They'll also rot in a soil that's wet in the summer during the bulb's dormant period.
USDA Hardiness Zone: 9a-11
