Wow, the last one (leaves along the ground) is really interesting! It reminds me of a Massonia or something - same look. I love Ledebouria, and grow several species, but nothing like this! I look forward to learning more about this genus! I've been unsuccessful with seeds. Do these tend to have low germination rates? I plant them, pretty much on top of the soil, and keep moist. If somebody knows of a better method, let me know! 
Best, Jude

Hi Mary Sue,

Thank you for adding more Ledebouria photos to the wiki. It seems to be a

very popular genus that many people grow but unfortunately we don't have a

whole lot of photos on the wiki. We have one that looks very similar to

yours, a form from the South Coast of Natal and blooms the same time as

yours. We grow it as summer grower and it responds really well to that

treatment. I wonder if these could be the same species, whatever it is.


Eventually I will put it on the wiki. I'm only through the letter A for my

photos that need to be added.
