Lachenalia viridiflora is a most appealing autumn- and winter-flowering bulbous plant, growing up to 200 mm high. Its startling turquoise blooms place it among an exclusive group of plants with turquoise, greenish-turquoise or sea-green flowers that include the exquisite green ixia, Ixia viridiflora, from Western Cape, and the dazzling jade vine, Strongylodon macrobotrys, from southeast Asia. Although critically endangered in its native habitat, the ease with which L. viridiflora can be cultivated as a pot subject has endeared it to gardeners around the world. ZA Distribution: Western Cape.
