Romulea cruciata

Rock garden cuteness! This Romulea has splendidly pink flowers with yellow throats with black markings. Very showy, & also very short, usually reaching a height of 4 inches, with a diminutive but brightly colored 1” flower. As a person who has long gardened on only a balcony I can genuinely attest to the magic of itty bitty plants (So Cute!), & many of the South African bulbs can survive almost entirely on rainfall, so there’s no raining on your neighbors! They’re also delightful in rockeries, or for those tiny little corners by pathways that need a little something special.
