From the wilds of South Africa comes this amazing species with upright stalks of 1" wide, dark green foliage. In warmer climates, the stalks can reach in excess of 3' tall. The larger stalks tend to arch outward with age due to excess do we. In early summer, the clumps are topped with amazing scapes of orange-yellow bells. This is one for the plant nut who likes to push the limits of hardiness. In Zone 7b, you will need to provide great drainage and protect the foliage from excess winter moisture to avoid slight foliage burn or rot (we planted ours under the eaves of the house) but either a cloth or upside down pot would do the trick.
