  • Remarks : a very variable species throughout the whole of its native range, even occasionally throwing very pale pink-flowered individuals, and there are currently no validly recognized varieties or subspecies. At the far northern edge of its range, F. magellanica forms interspecific hybrids with F. lycioides, F. magellanica is widely cultivated and has naturalized itself in parts of South America, East Africa, New Zealand, Ireland and Hawaii. The many so-called “varieties” commonly found in cultivation, however, have almost all been determined to be hybrids and should always be expressed as garden selections or cultivars. Flowering is from December to March, but occasionally starts as early as October and can continue to as late as April.
