If you love green flowers this is one of your best bets! This giant has numerous fragrant, pendent, flared-open green bells, on thick, strong stems. It will spread both by bulb division and also self-seeding if you are lucky providing viewers with an unforgettable sight.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
