Sparaxis Bulbs

Sparaxis bulbs are brilliant little flowers beaming with bold and bright colours. Reds, yellows, pinks, oranges and blacks in geometric patterns earn them the name the Harlequin flower.

Sparaxis are single flowers on super thin stems of 40cm long accompanied by sword-like foliage. These are relatively cheap flowers for late spring so you can fill quite a lot of the garden. They can be quite sprawling and wiry, but look great amongst the fresh green foliage of spring plants.

Originating in South Africa they will need to planted in well draining soil in a bright and sunny position. A loamy but rich soil is preferable. They aren’t fully hardy so will be OK in milder gardens but hard frosts will kill them off.

Although we sell them in autumn we continue to sell into spring. Planting them in spring will delay their flowering time but helps to avoid the harsh winter weather. They will grow well in a green house. Lift sparaxis bulbs when they are dormant and keep them dry, ready to replant in autumn. As a bonus, the seeds are also easy to propagate, which is worth it for such attractive little flowers.
