Libonia Floribunda winter-flowering plant


Libonia Floribunda winter-flowering plantThe Libonia Floribunda is a winter-flowering plant, and is easily grown in a cool greenhouse. It is very useful for table decoration, its slender red and yellow tubes of bloom being very effective, but it does not do to keep it for any length of time in a room where there is gas.

When flowering has ceased, encourage new growth by giving it plenty of water, air, and sunlight. The new shoots of the Libonia Floribunda should be cut back in May, and the tips of them used as cuttings, which strike readily in good mould.

Their height is about two feet.
