Good to know, thank you. There's a lot of A. capensis at the U.C. Irving Arboretum, so it seemed like it should work well for me here in Los Angeles. But I haven't had any germination on that one at all. I've had a couple other species germinate in the second year. I was afraid I'd missed a treatment requirement.

seem to have trouble. Do these seeds need any special treatment?

Most of ther Androcymbium species that we have grown germinated erratically
over 3 years; A. dregei a notable exception, blooming in 2.
