Struthiola striata

Scientific name

A pretty shrub with four petaloid scales and cream-coloured flowers, honey-scented at night.

To grow this species, the following advice from PlantZA applies (note this refers to another but very similar species):

Struthiola argentea is easily propagated from tip cuttings treated with rooting hormone during spring or in early summer. Cuttings respond well to a well-aerated growing medium that is placed on a heated bench (25º-27ºC). Rooting can take up to six weeks; rooted cuttings can be potted and grown in the nursery until planting time in the winter rainy season ( Western Cape ).
