Description

This "Butterfly Lily" or "Garland Flower" was discovered alongside a stream on the foothills of Everest. Just a few seeds left from the large heads of bright red seeds but flowers long-gone, so you may have a little treasure..something new......Can be grown either in a large pot in a conservatory, or in a well-drained spot outside

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
