Brunsvigia gariepensis is an extremely rare dwarf relative of the famous B. bosmaniae only described scientifically in 2012. Its open, rounded heads of pink to white trumpet-like flowers bloom in late summer or fall followed by tongue-like leaves that lay flat against the ground. You'll be one of the few people in the world to have this treasure. Keep on the dry side when dormant in summer perhaps watering only once a month. Plant the bulb mostly buried with the neck just above the soil. This is a non-hardy bulb that can be grown as a houseplant or in a heated greenhouse or sunroom. It's perfect for those interested in bulbs and houseplants and for succulent lovers looking to branch out. Our nursery-grown bulbs are adult blooming size though could take a year or two to settle in before blooming. Until then the foliage will be amazing.
