Moraea lewisiae ssp secunda Seeds - Indigenous Perennial Bulb Seeds from South Africa

R1.50

Moraea lewisiae ssp secunda Seeds

The genus Moraea can be divided into five groups: Galaxia, Gynandriris, Hexaglottis, Homeria, and Moraea. Homeria which was once considered to be a separate genus in the Iridaceae family is now included in Moraea. There are about 32 species of this Moraea subgroup native to southern Africa. They have long narrow basal leaves, sometimes only one per corm and large yellow, pink, orange, or bicolor flowers with six fairly equal tepals. The leaves of some species can be poisonous and are avoided by sheep and cattle and can then multiply freely. Some species have a reputation of being weedy and they are not welcomed in Australia or the United States because of the agricultural concerns. They are not very hardy so there is little danger of their becoming weedy in climates not to their liking.

Although the flowers only last a day or two, some of the species produce flowers over a long period. 

Moraea lewisiae ssp secunda grows to 40cm tall and has whip-like leaves and during spring is has bright yellow flowers that open in the afternoon. It is well suited to dry areas. Seeds are best sown during autumn.
