This fascinating genus hails from South Africa and has unique flowers shaped
like a starfish, usually with a frilled edge to the petal, which are scattered
along the leafy stems. In most species the flowers last but a day or two, but
they are produced in profusion over a fairly extended period of time. The most
unusual shape and coloration of the flowers make this genus worthy of more
attention. Winter-growing. Zone 9-10 SHIPS AUG-OCTOBER
Romulea is a very large genus widely distributed throughout the Mediterranean
region and southern Africa. The species native to the southwestern Cape
Province of South Africa are the most varied and colorful in the genus. All
species listed here are from that region, and are winter-growing, needing a dry
warm summer rest. Their brightly colored flowers are crocus-like, although
covering a much wider range of color than crocus. They are excellent container
subjects, and can be planted in the rock garden in milder regions. Zones 8-10
