This showy perennial is a native of the Cape of Good Hope, and is perfectly hardy, thriving in any garden soil and being an excellent plant for forming borders to walks, or for planting in rockeries.

Propagate by cuttings placed in a cold frame, in September or October, in the open ground in a well-sheltered place, in soil composed of half sand and half light loam well-mixed together; after they are rooted, plant them in a prepared bed two inches apart until wanted for planting where they are to flower.
