Monadenium ritchii

A small, clumping plant with tuberous roots, Monadenium ritchii grows to 30cm tall and 3 cm diameter with hot pink flowers in late summer before going dormant. Quite easy to grow, but keep quite dry during dormancy. I wish I had a better photo, but until better weather arrives this will have to do.


  1. Monadenium are one of my favorite plants. I've never seen one with it's flowers--thanks for sharing!
