More Twisted/Tortured Wasonias


I spotted these the other day – a huge clump of them in a driveway. Alice was asking if they are supposed to be that way – they are, but only come in the one colour, the candy pink. I think there are three main Watsonia colours – the candy pink, the salmon pink and the white. I must get myself some of the white, I have the other two.

I don't think these look as good en masse - I like them in just small clumps in a garden, where you can really see the twisting.

Got to agree with you Chloe - the picture of your own was far more inspiring than seeing them just clumped en masse. My wife's a big fan of Watsonia's. She's prepared for me to go to jail just to dig some up that grow wild alongside the roads here.

What is the proper name for these tisted Watsonias? - or are they diseased to be deformed like that?
Watsonias should be upright and erect ?
