GENERAL DESCRIPTION

“Homeria Collina” Was Named After Homer, The Epic Greek Poet, Homeria Is A South African Native Produced From Corms. This Brightly Coloured Gem Opens Its Flowers Above A Single Linear Leaf And Yellow Or Salmon Flowers. Although They Resemble Tulips They Are In Actual Fact Members Of The Iris Family.

Homeria Prefer Sunny Locations In Well-Drained, Sandy Soil

Choose A Well-Drained Site In A Sunny Location. Plant The Bulbs 1-2 Inches Deep 2-3 Inches Apart In An Outdoor Bed Or Container. After Planting Water The Bulbs Generously. Since Homerias Have Very Small Corms Do Not Plant The Corms Too Deeply Or Too Far Apart, In Fact A Good Way To Plant Them Is By Massing Them In Small Groups. It Is A Good “Filler” Growing Where Many Other Things Will Not Gtow

Corms That Are Planted In Spring Will Bloom Later In The Summer, While Corms Planted In The Autumn Will Flower In The Spring. Although The Individual Flowers Do Not Last Long, The Plant Produces So Many Of Them That The Flowering Display Can Be Enjoyed For A Long Time.

Mature Plants Reach About 2 Feet Tall; Use Them As Mass Plantings In Beds And Borders For Greater Effect Where Their Unusual Colour Can Be Appreciated. The Homerias Unusual Shapes And Colours Also Make It Particularly Useful As A Container Grown Plant.
