Dear Mary Sue:
              Seed of Velthemia bracteata (wavy edged shining deep green 
leaves) received from the summer rainfall region of S. Africa germinated in 
a 100% when fresh (this is, sown in Spring from a previous Autumn sowing). 
They tend to be evergreen and are superb pot plants.
Summer dormant V. capensis (greyish foliage, most of the bulb 
out of the ground) tend to be a lot more fuzzy and apparently resents 
overwatering and low temperatures a lot. Foliage of both species is very 
different. Most interesting plants tho.
