Rhodohypoxis is a genus of small bulbs with dense grassy foliage and fairly large flowers for the size of the plant which are produced with exhuberance. This one of the legion of pink-tinged white selections and is a good grower given well-drained yet moist soil. Choice little rock garden subject.
Easy and hardy little bulbous plant from South Africa and a good pink in this selection. This makes dense tuffets of grassy foliage in spring and summer and covers itself in May/June with pink flowers. Increases well but never a problem making an easy to divide clump when dormant.
Big pink flowers of substance on this densely clumping South African bulb. Hardy outside here given good drainage in winter (and mulch if a bad winter) and a choice candidate for the rock garden provided it gets ample water when in growth. Easy to grow in pots and overwinter in the garage.
A little densely clumping bulb with grassy leaves and a plethora of flowers of white blushing with pink shades which when it is full on can completely obscure the leaves. This likes that illusive moist but well-drained soil and is a classic little goody for the rock garden. Mulch if a severe winter.
Grassy little clumping rhizomatous bulb from South Africa which is easily grown here provided it has good drainage and moisture while in growth and a bit of mulch in winter. Dawn is a broad-petaled fairly large flowered selection in which the white flowers are just touched with pink.
A great rock garden plant for our area where it thrives on the sun and good drainage and rewards the neglectful gardener with unearned but copious amounts of showy white flowers. If we get bitter cold in the winter, this South African wouldn't mind a wee blanky of mulch.
Love the Rhodohypoxis and this is one that is not that easy to find. A tidy densely clumping bulb which loves good drainage when it is dormant in the winter and ample moisture when growing. Great for the sunny rock garden with some water. Medium pink flowers aging to white.
Lily Jean is a demure little thing with small double flowers randomly flecked with bits of red, pink and white. Quickly increrasing to form a dense little tussock with scads of flowers. This like ample moisture when growing and very good drainage in winter when dormant. Rock garden plant. Mulch if real cold.
A floriferous hybrid Rhodohypoxis from South Africa which white flowers nicely flushed in pink. This will easily cover itself in flowers in June-July increasing quickly making a dense clump which can be divided. Your friends will expect you to be gracious unless you come up with a plausible excuse.
Small but rapidly clumping bulb from South Africa with dense grassy leaves and small white flowers produced with some say reckless abandon during summer. Named for Ruth McConnell who was one of the main growers and hybridizers of the genus in the UK. This has been easy in the garden here.
This little gem is the result of artificially induced tetraploidy which essentially means a doubling of the chromosome count. Why should we care about something we can't see? Because like athletes abusing steroids, this is extra vigorous with larger flowers as a result. Bright cerise crimson flowers. Yum.
Little bulby plant from the Drakensberg Mts in South Africa. This is a good rock garden subject in that it likes good drainage in the winter. When growing, keep it watered reasonably and it will bloom its tail off with loads of small reddish flowers. Mulch if bitter cold in winter.
Choice little bulb for the rock garden, this increases quickly to make a dense grassy tuffet of leaves with lots of pink flowers in summer. Likes moisture when it is growing and good drainage in the winter when it is dormant. You would make some points with it by mulching if quite cold.
These are such good little quasi-bulbous plants from South Africa. Likes a full sun rock gardens with good drainage. Nice summer bloomers and good increasers making dense clumps. Probably deer resistant.
