Welcome to lachenalia.info, your online resource for information about Lachenalias and a few other genera of South African bulbs.
The genus Lachenalia currently comprises 136 species, approximately 100 recorded cultivars, and this site will endeavour to assist you to correctly identify its members.
The Library contains many and varied papers that include original descriptions, discertations and articles by horticulturalists with a passion for these plants.
Eventually this website will also, as well as documentation, contain a list of surplus stock that is available to Australian clients. If you live in Western Australia, Tasmania or the Northern Territory we are now able to handle the quarantine requirements.
We are the only importers of Lachenalia cultivars developed by the South African government and have decided that they will only be available, like the rest of our plants, through us personally or our sales website www.nerine.info.
We currently hold full registration for collections of Lachenalia, Massonia, Daubenya and Veltheimia with the Garden Plant Conservation Association of Australia (GPCAA).
We currently hold provisional registration for collections of Arisarum and Nerine with the Garden Plant Conservation Association of Australia (GPCAA).
The purpose of the collections is for intellectual curiosity and pleasure.
