Cape-Jewels Overview

This striking annual comes in yellow, orange, pink, cream, red, mauve or white, and on its own it is capable of creating a riot of colours so typical of the Namaqualand landscape. It is therefore well-suited to the sunny small garden, pots and larger gardens alike. But whatever the location, be prepared for a rich explosion of colours.
