All Flower AUG -OCT

Genus of 6 species of vigorous perennials from southern Africa. Evergreen species are from coastal areas, deciduous ones from more moist mountain grassland in inland regions.

Most hybrids are deciduous or semi-evergreen and are hardier than the species.  The flowerheads form 3 groups, generally, upward-looking round umbels, pendent umbels and an intermediate form.

They make long-lasting cut flowers and seed heads are decorative. They make attractive plants for large containers.
