Spiloxene capensis
“Painted Peacock Flower”

Spectacular & rare in cultivation, this native of the South African Cape is easily grown! The flowers are big, 3.5” to 4” across & are bright white or yellow, usually with a large, iridescent, blue-black center. To 12” tall, each stalk bears a single flower. The older the plant, the more flowering stalks & if happy, it will reseed, too. Bloom season is Feb. - April. And like most Cape bulbs, no Summer water after it finishes blooming. Growth & watering begin again in Fall. Deciduous.
