Lachenalia viridiflora

5th January 2017

A critically endangered species from the Western Cape where it is now found only in a single location on private land. Fortunately it is widely grown worldwide because of the remarkable colour of the flowers. In my greenhouse the light levels are too low in winter to develop ther best colour but it can be a deep turqoise green.
