rich but well drained soil with some water and some sun. The caudex can grow to
eight or even fifteen centimetres in diameter, the entire plant
to 35 centimetres in height. The flowers are yellow.
The genera name from Greek: Gymnos
means 'naked' while Latin sperma means 'seed', referring to the unripe seeds which
are exposed when the membranous pericarp splits. The species in honour of S.
