Curious and rare South African bulbous perennial, the grassy onion like leaves are tightly curled and coiled at the ends (plant perm?), heat and dry make them coil even more! 8-12” spring spikes of sweet vanilla scented yellow flowers marked with green add more drama! This kinky plant needs well drained soil, full sun and is summer dormant, returning in fall. Let dry between waterings and find a dry spot for dormancy. Said to make a good houseplant in a sunny window and easy to overwinter indoors. Hardiness is not really known, but said to be 8b.
USDA Zone 8b
