Romulea luteoflora Seeds
Romulea is a genus in the Iridaceae family of about 90 species that is found both in South Africa and in Europe. Rootstock is a corm, globose, bell shaped to top shaped, compressed or asymmetric with a circular to crescent shaped basal ridge.
This genus has flowers reminiscent of Crocus. Many are quite striking, especially the South African species and there is a great variation in color and markings of the flowers. They are easy to grow in pots and many are easy from seed, flowering rather quickly in some cases.
Romulea luteoflora grows 8-20cm in height. From late winter to spring it bears attractive yellow flowers with dark lines or blotches around the cup. It is naturally found growing on on loamy soils in the Cape Province.
