Cardiocrinum cordatum var. glehnii
GIANT JAPANESE WOOD LILY
Showy white trumpets marked with green. Tower on stout, upright 1.2-1.8 stems in summer. Handsome and neat clump of shiny pointed foliage. Loves rich compost in woodland conditions. A stunner under trees and shrubs. Frost hardy.
Hardier than the commonly grown Himalayan Cardiocrinums. Forms bulb & makes offsets each year.
SEED SOWING ADVICE:
Can be sown at any time of year.
Sow on surface of good quality potting mix. Cover seeds with 6mm of mix or coarse sand. Keep moist for 2-3 weeks at 13-18C. Wrap punnet in cling-wrap, place in the fridge (not freezer) for 4-6 weeks. Remove from fridge, remove cling-wrap. Return to 13-18C and be patient. Seedlings will emerge at all different times and over a period. But this treasure is worth patience. Do not discard punnet.
