Also - one of my Forest Lily plants is beginning to flower 😄. Veltheimia is a winter flowering bulb, and so far for me it has proven to be evergreen as it has been in green foliage for over a year now with no signs of dying back now. Not sure if I should have forced dormancy during the summer but too late now anyway! This is the first flower I’ve had on ‘Rosalba’ and it has rosè tubular florets with lemon yellow tips 👌🏼 - just waiting for my other ‘Lemon Flame’ cultivar to do the same now 😁

Thanks Sue 😊 will post as the flower opens more. I’m so pleased with it as only has a single bulb and it already has two offsets now, the foliage has really opened out quite a bit - might be too big for the windowsill this winter 😂

Same as the other #veltheimia but different cultivar 'Rosalba' - again, I've planted the bulb with its neck exposed slightly. Both these pots are on my windowsill in a sunny position, and indoors. #veltheimia-bracteata #veltheimiabracteatarosalba
