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 very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
