An evergreen plant with very showy orange flowers in summer. Natal Lilies come from the north eastern parts of South Africa and grow in large groups in shaded woody areas. They are tender to frost so can be grown outside the warmer parts of the Mediterranean, or as attractive houseplants in the UK. Plants have strappy green leaves, growing to a height of about 60cm.
Natal Lilies grow best to full to part shade and well drained soil with added grit and leaf mold. They will grow beneath trees as they tolerate dry soil. As house plants, they grow best away from direct light and need a cool room in winter, around 10°C, in order to flower the following summer.
Pack of 3 fleshy seeds. These are unconventional large fleshy seeds that do not store well and need to be sown on arrival. Plants take 3 to 4 years to flower from seed. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.
LIMITED AVAILABILITY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER 2018/9.
