African Flame Lily (Gloriosa superba)

Gloriosa superba is a deciduous, summer-growing climber up to 1.5 m tall, with tuberous roots. The slender stems are produced annually and are upright to scrambling and can grow up to 4 m long. Tubers sprout in spring, and a tuber sends up 1 to 6 stems. The leaves are shiny, bright green and are tipped in a tendril, which will cling to anything it touches. The stems die back in late summer and the tubers are dormant during winter.

Vygies (or Mesembryanthemums) are truly South Africa’s most colourful plant group. They are not only easy to grow, they’re also drought tolerant and grow vigorously. And there are so many beautiful species to choose from!
Although Vygies are technically succulents, they are neither thorny nor arid-looking. Many give a lush appearance, even through times of drought. And the flowers, with their numerous shining petals, are countless in colour and size.

The best known vygies are the Drosanthemums, Delospermas, Lampranthus, and Bokbaai vygie (Dorotheanthus)

Sage (Perennial Salvias)

Perennial Salvias (also known as “sage”) are mainstays of the midsummer garden border—blooming summer to autumn! Planted in the spring, these aromatic beauties are great for cutting and beloved by bees and butterflies—plus, they’re drought-tolerant! See how to plant, grow, and care for Salvia.

Part of the mint family (Lamiaceae), salvias appear as a colorful spike of densely-packed flowers with tubular blossoms atop square stems and velvety leaves.

The common kitchen herb garden sage—Salvia officinalis—is actually a type of salvia; it’s a relative of the many ornamental species and has a few attractive ornamental varieties itself.

Hummingbirds and butterflies love salvia’s tubular flowers and they’re adored by bees, too, so plant them if you wish to attract these pretty pollinators!

Bird of Paradise Flower (Strelitzia reginae)

One of South Africa’s favourite exports, and is cultivated worldwide – it has even become the official flower of Los Angeles! Strelitzias are hardy, and once established can withstand long dry spells and a fair amount of neglect. Plants can be grown in both sun and shade, and provide a beautiful structural display when in flower. Flowers resemble the head of a crane, hence the common name Crane Flower or Bird of Paradise, and both the leaves and flowers can be used in a cut-flower display.

Red hot poker(Kniphofia)

Red-hot pokers are excellent garden plants. Their bright colours will add character to your garden and will attract a lot of birds.
Kniphofias are herbaceous perennials growing from rhizomes. Most species of Kniphofia are evergreen while a few are deciduous and sprout again in the early summer. They bear dense, erect spikes (elongated inflorescence with stalkless flowers) above the level of the leaves in either winter or summer depending on the species. The small, tubular flowers are produced in shades of red, orange, yellow and cream.

Agapanthus(Agapanthus praecox)

Agapanthus is one of the most popular plants in South Africa, and is cultivated world-wide. The beautiful blue or white blooms look stunning during the summer flowering season, and help to liven up an otherwise dull area of the garden. The evergreen foliage provides colour throughout the year, and the plants can withstand a fair amount of neglect. Once again, Agapanthus forms clumps, which can be split after a few years and reused elsewhere in the garden.

Wild Garlic (Tulbaghia violacea)

Tulbaghia (Wild Garlic) is one of the hardiest species on the list, and has become very popular with gardeners and landscape architects around the country. It has a long-flowering period, and when mass planted creates a stunning display with its pinkish-mauve flowers. It can survive extended dry spells as well as heavy rain, and is generally a fuss-free plant provided it is used in a sunny to semi-shade position. Clumps can be split after a few years and used elsewhere in the garden.

This is the first in a series of 20 articles on the best indigenous flowers to plant in your garden.

1. Pincushion Protea (Leucospermum cordifolium (Salisb. Ex Knight) Fourc.)

Indigenous to the southwestern region of the Cape, the pincushion protea is one of the most popular proteas for gardeners.

Leucospermum cordifolium is a rounded spreading shrub up to 2 m in diameter and about 1,5 m high, with a single main stem and horizontally spreading stems, hard green leaves and 1 to 3 large inflorescences borne at the end on the stem. The inflorescences consist of a large number of small flowers. It is the stiff protruding styles of the flowers which are the source of the common name "pincushion" for this genus.
