All the Sprekelia formossissima I thought I was growing, are Habranthus 
robustus RussellManning, Alani. As you say, they are more like a weed, 
the whole family of them, a very pretty weed though.

I had given a friend who is growing some plants, with little knowledge, 
some seeds of the H. robustus a couple of years ago.  Yesterday she got 
her first flowers. She is over the moon, so delicate and pretty.....

I love the first flower of the H. brachyandrus!  Certainlydifferent.
