Romulea subfistulosa

Pure eye candy! This jewel of a Romulea (member of the Iris family) blooms in spring, bearing 2-3” satiny bright rose-pink cup-shaped blooms centered with a yellow eye which is beautifully marked with reddish-black spots and veining. From 7-10” tall, Romuleas will eventually multiply into a carpet of Springtime delight. They require a dry period during their summer dormancy, so plant them in a well-drained summer-dry garden or in containers that can be set aside when they finish blooming. Other than that, they are EASY and RELIABLE, thriving in our Mediterranean climate.
