A very unusual and exotic bulb from South Africa. Shiny, wide, bright green leaves form low rosettes which are beautiful by themselves. The flower spikes emerge not unlike an Aloe except they are long rose-pink hanging bells with green tips. Truly a show stopper. Their late winter/early Spring bloom and preference to be left alone when planted make them a terrific carefree bulb. Veltheimia are very useful under trees or in summer dry shady corners.
Light until top growth emerges, to moderate during active growth
