Sprekelia formosissima Begins The Summer on June 22, 2013 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Email Other Apps From rocky highland areas of central Mexico, an effortless bulb here, with multiple rounds of bloom in warm weather if it likes loves its location. Swift drainage a must; bone-dry during winter dormancy preferred. Happy Summer!

Beautiful color and form. So how do you keep it bone dry in the winter?ReplyDeleteRepliesHoover BooJune 22, 2013 at 1:10 PMIt's in a raised bed in sandy-silty soil--that seems to be good enough. With a measly 5" of rain this winter, dry wasn't difficult. :( DeleteRepliesReplyReplyMulchMaidJune 23, 2013 at 8:40 AMWhat an amazing red. Sadly, not a plant for our wet, wet winters here.
