Notes for the Genus:

Nananthus

The genus Nanathus occurs widely in the interior of South Africa, in the Eastern Cape Province, Northern Cape Province, the Northwest Province, and the Free State. There is also a population in eastern Namibia. The thick-rooted plants are tufted with pointed leaves arranged in rosettes and the attractive flowers come in yellows and candy stripes. Hardy growers, Nananthus will do well in a clayey soil. In the wild, they are summer growers, but in cultivation they often behave as winter growers. Nananthus is another genus in need of taxonomic clarification. Plants are propagated by seed.
