Veltheimia bracteata

Glossy Forest Lily


These have beautiful pink flowers which also looks like a little aloe and last at least a month. The Veltheimia Bracteata ‘Glossy Forest Lily’ loses its leaves briefly in summer but is quick to put out new ones.

How to use in the Garden

Perfect for the smallest space, just one or two of each will be lovely in a townhouse garden, in a pot or the shade of a tree or wall. In larger gardens plant them in great swathes under trees – the White Paintbrush will look beautiful massed in front of the Veltheimia Bracteata. You could add Clivias and Scadoxus species (Snake Lily) for a spring show. Shade need never be difficult again!
