If you're a flower arranger, we strongly recommend that you add this gem to your short list. An incredibly long vase life of 10-14 days (hence the common name of "Wonder Flower'), outward facing blossoms that blend nicely with casual and formal looks, a light fragrance and easy to position straight stems all argue for wider use. In the garden the plants die back and slip into dormancy after flowering, leaving room for a neighboring mid-summer bloomers to take over center stage. These undemanding South African darlings are happy even in dry sites as long as they have moderate amounts of moisture during the spring.
