Catalogue of Rhodohypoxis and x Rhodoxis

Below is a selection of our National Collection that we have available for 2016.

POSTAGE AND PACKING - This will generally be from March until the end of April when the corms are just breaking dormancy (postage and packing will therefore be cheaper) and continue for as long as the plants are available when they are in full growth (and consequently heavier and more expensive to post). The cost of postage and packing will therefore vary accordingly. For more information on Postage and Packing PLEASE read the page on Mail Order Information.
PLEASE NOTE: We will NOT start post the plants until they are showing signs of growth and we are sure we are sending live, healthy plants. The date when we will start posting plants will therefore vary from year to year depending on the weather conditions etc.

P.& P. £5.00 from March until end of April .

P.& P. £10.50 when in active growth to allow for the extra weight.....Please refer to Mail Order section for more details before ordering. Thank you.

Many of the corms (especially the cultivars) are large and have many buds per corm in which case the price quoted is per corm. Others are naturally small in which case we will supply several corms for the price quoted.
Please note the corms of some species and a few cultivars, depending on their parentage, are naturally small but this will have no effect on their performance. It is just the way they are.

Please note: NEW for 2017 indicates that we did not have this plant listed in last years catalogue. It does not mean it is new to cultivation.
Plants that are new to cultivation are labelled accordingly.
