Schizostylis Coccinea Major
Large, cup-shaped scarlet flowers open continuously over slowly running clumps of sword-shaped leaves. In bloom from spring until the first serious frosts of winter, and even all-winter-long if it is mild, this must be one of the longest flowering plants in the garden!
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
