This an old blog that I am reviving at the moment. My home made websites work well and I would like to continue with them. Blogger however is so easy to deal with now and saves a lot of time. I shall therefore place posts here and may transfer some to my other websites later that are better indexed for specific searches. The indexing/content of the old posts need to be improved - Will work on it bit by bit. You are welcome to leave comments - unfortunately I cannot reply to them as it causes Firefox errors.


Drimia physodes - Karree Rivier Tanqua Karoo

Drimia physodes is an attractive large growing bulb distributed over arid parts of the Western Karoo. The bulbs can be subterranean or partly exposed above the ground.

The wavy erect leaves appear in winter. Flowering time is given from October to April. The flowers open late afternoon on a subcorymbose raceme. It is a rewarding species to cultivate.
