Indications: Administered to people only. Applied in a magical sense. Caution: Harmful to people or animals.
Sandersonia aurantiaca is an erect, deciduous, summer-growing geophyte. The elegant, lantern-like flowers are borne on long stalks produced in the leaf axils. New growth is produced in spring; the new rootstock and slender aerial stems are produced from a bud at the tip of one of the two old, swollen lobes. Sandersonia aurantiaca is not an easy plant to cultivate. It requires a cool climate. Soil must be fertile but well-drained. (Wildflower Nursery)
