Sparmannia africana - seeds
A South African evergreen shrub, unique in the fact that it makes an easy houseplant, tolerating the cool, shady conditions often found in many older homes. Large 8 inch leaves are accompanied by cup-shaped white blooms from spring to summer. Sow seeds on the surface of lightly firmed, moist mix in pots or trays. Cover with a fine sprinkling of mix or vermiculite. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the soil moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 21-30 days.
