Babiana Stricta

Mixed colours of Babiana Stricta. An upright scented bloom flowering from spikes. Blues, purples and pinks in small trumpet flowers coupled with swordlike foliage. Flowers will start from May but bulbs planted later will continue to grow and show later in the season.

Originally from South Africa where baboons will search out the bulbs. Hence the name 'Babiana'. Lift in the Autumn to keep from the frosts and baboons.
