Galtonia viridiflora


Availability : Available

Description :

The Galtonia or Cape Hyacinth genus is native to South Africa and named after Francis Galton (1822–1911), a British explorer and scientist.

Galtonia viridiflora, also known as Ornithogalum viridiflorum, grows on the cliffs and steep rocky slopes of the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa.

A later flowering variety than Galtonia candicans, it produces pale green bellflowers borne on 80 cm high floral stems in August-September.

Plant Galtonia vidiflora in a sunny spot in a rock garden in permeable, light and well-drained soil. As this plant is sensitive to the cold, it likes a protective winter mulch in non-temperate climates.

You can lift the bulbs in the autumn and replant the following April. Re-seeds itself.
