Gethyllis, a genus of the family Amaryllidaceae, has such unusual foliage, flowers and fruits that it ranks as one of the most fascinating groups of bulbous plants in southern Africa. Unlike most Amaryllidaceae, the leaves of Gethyllis are often hairy. The hairs are simple and evenly spaced or T-shaped and clustered together, which adds to the density of the covering.The flowers vary from white to cream or pink and the tepals are often boldly striped with dark pink. Equally attractive are the prominent, bright yellow anthers, which help to distinguish groups of species. Although initially long and straight, the anthers eventually curl up, becoming less conspicuous with age. The style is noticeably variable in its length and position. It is straight and stout, terminating in a small, undifferentiated stigma, or slender and curved with a conspicuous, broad stigma at its tip. Limited quantities. Don't miss out on this rarity.
