Hello, In our garden 200 m from the méditerranean sea Veiltheimia has naturalised under Viburnum tinus. Even with very little rain it is in leaf since August and generally flowers in January February. The Yellow form Lemon Flame does just as well in the same location. Have a look at http://bulbargence.com/m_catalogue/article.php/… Kind greetings Lauw de Jager South of France -----Original Message----- I'm in Encinitas, not far from Richard in Vista, both in San Diego County. My velthemia grow in the dry shade of a pepper tree (Schnius molle). They do go dormant in summer, and sprout about now. The sprouts are leaves, not flower spikes. The flower spikes follow. I too would love some yellow velthemia. I've seen them in a local private nursery but they were not in sufficient numbers for the owner to sell - yet. Anyone else have any sources?
