The fact that these unassuming Homeria plants with their grass-like foliage, have earned the name of Cape Tulips attests to the beauty these bicolour South African wildflowers produce during summer. Homeria’s unusually coloured flowers, which mix yellows, salmon, pinks and even lilac in unexpected ways, only last for a couple of days, but flowers are produced in abundance. Homeria plants will also spread prolifically, so much so, you may find it necessary to bring them under control. Until that point, enjoy the landscape of colour they’ll give you. Homerias can prove toxic to both animals and humans, so take care when handling them. Like most bulbs, Homeria like the sun and while they enjoy moist soil, expect good drainage.
