Home-grown flowers

Kirstenhof resident Wendy Roberts with her flowers.

Kirstenhof resident Wendy Roberts has grown what she says, is an unusual yellow form of Amaryllis belladonna.

The most common colour for these particular flowers is red/ bright pink and Amaryllis belladonna is a plant species native to the province but widely cultivated as an ornamental.

Ms Roberts now has 55 of them in her garden at the Clé du Cap Retirement Home.

She says she was given five bulbs by her Bergvliet neighbour 16 years ago and they have now multiplied.
