Rhodohypoxis baurii

 Rhodohypoxis baurii is a delightful South African tuberous plant with bright pink flowers all summer. It is ideal for Alpine troughs or gravel gardens. In Africa it grows in areas of high rainfall in summer and dry in the Winter .I have grown this plant for over 30 years and find it tolerant of cold if kept dry. Plant it in 75% gravel.
