    Wow this looks amazing – don’t think I know it. Have you a full photo of it? What conditions it likes etc – bulb? etc.

      Hi Yvonne
      It is a bulbous perennial and comes from South Africa. It is a short plant, really only two large leaves with the flower head.

    Well done Massonias are not easy. did you grow it from seed?

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      Hi CG
      No I have to confess to buying it about a month ago, in bud, from Bob Brown

    2. croftgarden says:

      Bob Brown has wonderful plants and you’ll have to treasure this one.

    I wondered where the pustules came in – presumably the leaves, although they look quite attractive and ‘pustules’ conjures up the image of something a little unpleasant!

      Hi Cathy
      If you look at the leaves you will see small lumps which I am assuming is what the pustulata refers to. When I bought it from Bob Brown he made me run my hand over the leaf saying it as rather warty!
