One of the first Rhodohypoxis with double flowers Rhodohypoxis confecta 'Lilly Jean' has grey-green, velvety leaves and pale pink summer flowers which look a little bit like roses.
For troughs, alpine rockery or alpine greenhouse.
Grow in the sun in a rock garden in light, well-drained, humus-rich soil or in a pot in equal parts garden soil, rough sand and leaf compost.
In its native habitat, Rhodohypoxis is subject to cold, dry winters and wet, very rainy summers.
During winter dormancy, the growing medium should be perfectly drained and kept slightly damp.
Rhodohypoxis prefers the cold and dry rather than the cold and damp.
A tip for growing in the earth is to place a pane of glass or polycarbonate resting on four little lugs of wood. Only remove the protective pane of glass in the spring when the new growth appears or take the plants in pots out of the cold frame.
