Tulbaghia montana

Delightful little high mountain species apparently confined to the South Eastern slopes of the Natal Drakensberg. Forming a tufted clump of glossy mid-green leaves. The reverse of the foliage is dull and glaucous with a prominent midrib with leaf edges inrolled somewhat. The perianth segments have inrolled margins and are violet-grey edged with white. These reflex with age. However the crowning glory is the prominent brilliant-orange slender elongated corona. Day scented. In flower April onwards. Best displayed in a pot in very well-drained compost mix. [8"] 20 cm. Fairly hardy. Often misnamed in the trade Tulbaghia leucantha.
