Veltheimia bracteata

Lush and luxuriant looking but deceptively tough, wonderful for those difficult dry shade to semi shade spots. Also makes a truly excellent pot plant for the shady porch or verandah. Summer dormant, the shiny broad green ruffled leaves appear in late summer / early spring followed by flower spikes in winter and spring.

Plant in shade / semi shade and leave undisturbed where it can happily grow for many years. Will cope with light frosts but not heavy frosts. Fertilise during spring and winter. Generally disease free, but protect from snails, slugs and caterpillars.
