Gethyum atropurpureum - 2022


By Andrewr

Gethyum atropurpureum - 2022 (Gethyum atropurpureum)

This bulb from Chile is never going to win any beauty prizes - "interesting" rather beautiful. Grows to 12 inches in well-drained soil in a sunny position. Needs to be kept dry in the winter, also in the summer, but needs moisture in the spring. Oh, and it's pollinated by flies so not a very pleasant odour either.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I love the colour of this. fly pollination is always interesting.
