  The Boophone disticha seed I sent is from a summer growing, deciduous form that has happily resided in my front yard in Berkeley for 3 years now, the mother blooming every year. This was the first year for the father who also had deeply red/pink blooms. The father was in a somewhat shadier locale, but otherwise only 10 ft from the mother - so consider that with respect to their differing colors. Apart from mother nature, the yard gets water no more often than every 2-3 weeks, year-round. The bulbs are planted with only the neck of the bulbs exposed in mounded beds of rocky, succulent-friendly soil.
