Monsonia speciosa

The genus of which this charming plant is the most distinguished species, has been named in honour of Lady Anne Monson. The whole family are natives of the Cape, and in their habit and fructification bear great affinity to the Geranium. The present species was introduced into this country in 1774, by Mr. Masson.We received this elegant plant just as it was coming into flower, from Mr. Colvill, Nurseryman, Kings Road, Chelsea, who was so obliging as to inform me that he had succeeded best in propagating it by planting cuttings of the root in pots of mould, and plunging them in a tan pit, watering them as occasion may require, in due time buds appear on the tops of the cuttings left out of the ground.It rarely or never ripens its seed with us.Should be treated as a hardy greenhouse plant, may be sheltered even under a frame, in the winter.
