South African and Australian Natives

Strumaria truncata two bloom-size bulbs

Small white bells on a curiously curved stem.  This is a winter growing Amaryllid from South Africa that is very easy to grow. It grows well in containers and produces offsets freely to make a cheerful clump.  My bulbs are grown from Silverhill seed and I have stock from the Doring River Bridge and Kamaggas, South Africa.  Make a note on your order at checkout if you have a preference for a locality.

(Amaryllidaceae) This is an order for two bloom-size bulbs.  They will ship when dormant: spring-late summer.  If you order plants while the bulbs are still in active growth, the bulbs will ship separately.


Light: Full sun

Water: Moderate to heavy requirements provided that the soil is sharply draining.

Soil: Sharply draining, but high in organic matter.

Fertilizer: Relatively heavy feeder, so a slow-release fertilizer is appreciated. I use a peat-based potting mix with a generous helping of extra pummice added.

Hardiness: USDA Zone 10
