Notes for the Genus:

Deilanthe

The genus occurs in the Western, Northern, and Eastern Cape Provinces and in the Free State. The genus is characterized by tuberous roots and velvety succulent leaves. They are active in late winter when they produce highly scented yellow flowers in the afternoon or evening. (One author compares the scent to freesias). As with other tuberous rooted mesembs, they prefer a well-drained soil and require little water during their inactive phase. They make excellent pot subjects, and are easily propagated by seed.
