The enchanting Montbretia are among the oldest ornamental plants and were already extremely popular in grandmother's time. They originally come from the mild mountain regions of South Africa, where they form dense plant colonies.

The sunnier the Montbretia is, the more flowers it shows

The right location

In order for the Montbretia to flower plentifully, you should give the plants a warm, sunny and sheltered location. Here the Montbretia are also frost hardy with some winter protection and do not have to be dug up in autumn.

The condition of the soil is also important, because the small tubers quickly begin to rot if they become waterlogged. Enrich heavy or compacted soils with sand so that the water can drain off well.

tips

If the Montbretie is too cold and too shady, the flowering time is significantly reduced and the plant may not flower at all. In this case, transplant the Montbretie to a warmer location, for example in front of a house wall, which stores the heat and gives it off at night.
