(Award of Garden Merit) Family Melianthaceae
Originating from South Africa
Melianthus major may remain evergreen in mild winters. Severe frost will cut it to ground, but by providing a winter mulch around the roots, new growth will appear the following spring and grow surprisingly rapidly. It has a sprawling habit and may require some support.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in sun.
