BEAUTIFUL, CAREFREE NATIVE OF THE MOZAMBIQUE ARE OF SOUTH AFRICA

50 FRESH SEED, JUST HARVESTED THIS PAST SEASON.

This little plant —without being invasive--will spread to cover a fairly large area within a few years. The tiny rhizomes/bulbs would be great to plant under sod when installing a new lawn or rebuilding an old one. They will flower for about a month at the end of winter to early spring, and then will disappear until the next year—with leaves browning and going dormant usually before the grass needs to be mowed—rather like daffodils. It’s never a nuisance, but keeps popping up in the most amazing places

It drops seed liberally, and the reseeded new plants bloom the first year. It’s easy to grow, and naturalizes in zones 8 - 10b. In my area of Texas, it prefers at least some light shade to full shade.

Soft, grass-like leaves grow 8 - 12 inches tall. It develops tiny, long-lived perennial bulbs. The vivid salmon flowers, about an inch across, appear along slender stems only in the very early spring-cheerful, gloriously brilliant color before almost anything else. It freely produce bright red seeds—rather large, compared to the rest of the plant—that darken to russet as they dry.


ANOMATHECA LAXA IS A BEAUTY AND AN AMAZING, BRILLIANT DISPLAY.


I have not read a negative review of this plant. It is just a charmer and a treasure!

THESE SEEDS ARE HOMEGROWN, HANDPICKED AND CLEANED, AND WERE COLLECTED THIS PAST SEASON, FOR THIS GROWING SEASON.

We ship the same or next day after payment clears, unless other arrangements are made.

We love the United States Postal Service for shipping. We will be glad to offer you whatever level of USPS service you prefer or require, from economy to express...with the exception of live plants.

Live plants will ship on Mondays and Tuesdays, only, by Priority Mail, at the minimum, so they arrive in viable, healthy condition.

We also have ready access to UPS and FedEx, and will certainly use either of those services, if that is the preference of our customer.

Larger and heavier packages, however, are shipped FedEx Ground, which generally means they arrive in 3 to 5 business days.

Larger and higher priced orders will be insured. We do not like the idea of either our customer or the Studio taking a loss for damages incurred in transit.

If your goods need to be delivered outside the continental US, please contact us and let us get you a shipping quote.


Payments

All our prices are posted in US dollars (USD).

PayPal is our default method of payment. We can also accept credit cards and are perfectly willing to discuss other modes of transferring funds.

Payment is due at checkout. Custom contracts require a 50% down payment to initiate, once agreement has been reached regarding designs and costs. We will supply email updates regarding the progress of work at its various stages, with a final update and invoice for the balance due at completion of the work. Balances must be satisfied before orders are shipped. Works with balances due for longer than 7 days will be "put on the shelves" and made available to everyone as part of the Studio's inventory.


Returns & exchanges

Honestly, this has never happened to me, but I must address the possibility. I do love a happy customer.

If you find you are truly unhappy with your purchase--it doesn't match the description, color, size, condition, quality, or you were shipped the wrong item entirely--we will accept the return of unused/unworn/unaltered items--just notify us within 14 days after delivery. Refund or exchange for equal value of full purchase price will be made upon the return of merchandise.

All return shipping/insurance fees are the customer's responsibility.


Additional policies

Custom, Made to Order sales are FINAL. We work hard to please our customers before work even begins and keep them happy and apprised during the process to completion. Down payments for custom orders that remain unpaid are not refundable.
