Thank you Wendy, it's been in bloom for at least 3 months

Fantastic Pic, must admit I've never heard of this flower. Also I like your Username--Mazzy Star was a nice folky American music group from the 80s--But then you knew that ?

I'm not even sure what this is now. !! I thought it was a bouvadia then baurii but the leaves don't match these ... I thought I'd written it down when I bought it but no...
Yes Outlander, I did get my username from Mazziestar the singer. Everyone calls me Maz and my partner had an album of hers, so I fancied it for myself!

Is it bouvardia? Is it scented? I just googled it because I had never heard of it either but I am trying to grow seeds of rhodohypoxis baurii and the leaves on it are a bit like spears as in iris. It is a small plant. It is very pretty anyway.

I think it is a bouvadia, Scotsgran, but there is no scent. However it's still blooming and there are plenty more to come out yet. Had it since May and it's still going strong. (Can't seem to change the title at the top of the pic!)

Mazziestar click on 'edit photo' under the photo on your photos page. You can change the title or anything else and then scroll down to where it says 'add photo' and click on that. It will then publish your photo under the new title. It took me a while to get around the instructions and I am always nervous of trying something, in case I cannot reverse the action, if I do not achieve what I wanted to.

Oh thank you Scotsgran! It was the "add photo" that confused me!

See who else is growing Rhodohypoxis baurii (Red star).

See who else has plants in genus Rhodohypoxis.
