Plant Species of the genus Adenandra

Information about this genus
Name: Adenandra
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: These shrubs require a deeply worked, free-draining gritty soil in a sunny open position and are ideal for growing in rock gardens and containers. In cooler climates they can be wintered in a greenhouse. Any fertilizer should be applied sparingly. Propagate from seed sown in early summer or half-hardened cuttings in late summer.
Description: This is a genus of 18 species of small evergreen shrubs native to South Africa where they grow on rocky mountainsides and sea cliffs. Ranging up to 3 ft (1 m) in height, they have gland-dotted branches that are often sticky. Small aromatic leaves are a feature they share with the related Coleonema genus. The 5-petalled flowers, about 1 in (25 mm) wide, are usually white or pink and are fragrant in some species.
