 Hello,
In our garden  200 m from the m├ęditerranean 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

Kind greetings

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?
