Plant Species of the genus Burchellia

Information about this genus
Name: Burchellia
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Burchellia prefers a light, fertile and well-drained soil with plenty of summer moisture, in a warm locality not subject to heavy frosts. It will tolerate full sun and filtered shade. The shrub may need occasional trimming to preserve its natural rounded shape, and a light trimming after flowering to prevent fruit production and so improve flower quality. Seeds can be sown in late winter or spring, or half-hardened cuttings can be taken in late summer or autumn.
Description: This is a genus of a single species in the madder family from South Africa, named after William Burchell, a botanical explorer in South Africa. It is not often seen in gardens, in spite of having attractive foliage and showy flowers.
