These cormous perennials from Southern Africa, have linear leaves and spikes of pink or orange flowers, in spring and summer. Similar to Crocosmia, but Tritonia have individual flowers with a short tube, so have a more 2D appearance when compared to the long-tubed flowers of monbretia. The flowers of Tritonia are very attractive to bees and hoverflies and, given their flowers are less tubular than those of Crocosmia, the nectar in particular is accessible by a wider range of pollinators.
