about Brunsvigia grandiflora

Hi All,
         Brunsvigia grandiflora grows well in my climate, and although it
comes from a summer rainfall area, the bulbs are definitely winter growing
and summer dormant.

The trick I have found to growing this plant is to never stop watering it!

When summer comes here, and the Brunsvigia grandiflora starts to go dormant,
I put them with my Rainlilies just to make sure that I don't forget to water
them. They never really dry out and usually receive a summer watering every
two or three days. The 6 year old bulbs have increased each year under this

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,
