Bracteata is one of only two in the genus, Veltheimia, coming from forests and coastal scrub of the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Showy, green-spotted, dusky pink tubular flowers are arranged on a spike much as Red Hot Pokers (Kniphofia). Leaves, though, are broad, glossy, and wavy-edged, forming large, lush-looking basal rosettes. Rich soil preferred.

Minimum temperature: 20° F
