HESPERANTHUS (schizostylis)(Kaffir Lily)

HESPERANTHUS (schizostylis)(Kaffir Lily)

An excellent plant with a slightly bulbous rhizome for autumn flowering when there is little else in the garden. It grows well in sun or shade but must have a damp root run in early summer. It is happy in any soil but must be divided every three years in spring otherwise the flowers will cease to appear. Cover with leaves or bracken in winter in cold districts. They will become deciduous in cold winters otherwise they remain evergreen but the flowers grow from new shoots,. 
These have now moved into a new genus - Hesperanthus.
