Just the name ‘Fairy Cups’ conjures up a pretty picture and these dainty sounding flowers certainly live up to their name. Originating from the Cape of Good Hope, Africa and also known as Cape tulips, Homeria are part of the iris family but look more like a species tulips. The open six petalled blooms in a mixture of bright lemon yellows and warm salmon-pink tones have deeper second tones in the centres and will be in flower during May and June. Homeria are excellent as a cut flowers and suitable for growing in pots and tubs. Height 50cms. Flowers May-June .
Product Code: PHOM001
Homeria corms prefer to be planted in a sunny site with good drainage approximately 8-10cms deep and 5cms apart and will spread to form good size clumps of colour over time. They can be lifted and divided every 2/3 years. Homeria leaves are strappy and basal (grow from the base of the plant) and often each corm will just produce one leaf in a dark green shade. Foliage can be cut back once the leaves turn yellow.
