Plant Species of the genus Berzelia

Information about this genus
Name: Berzelia
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Berzelia is best gown in light well-drained soil with a good supply of summer moisture and a position in full sun. If necessary, trim lightly to shape after flowering. Most species are easily propagated from seed or from small half-hardened tip cuttings of non-flowering stems.
Description: This South African genus includes some 12 species of upright, wiry-stemmed evergreen shrubs with a dense covering of small, fine, needle-like leaves. The flowers, which appear in spring and summer, are minute but are packed in spherical clusters, of which there are several per head of bloom. The flowers are white to cream and because the stamens extend beyond the tiny petals, the flowerhead appears studded with protrusions.
