Description

Collected on our trip to Sakhalin, (RBS0276), this delicate, but giant, member of the lily-of-the-valley family has fragrant creamy bells, followed by large, eliptical, soft red berries, on tall arching stems. Infrequently encountered, but when it is, often found growing in shady woodland or on riverbanks in deep forest.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
