Cardiocrinum giganteum - WJC13698

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From seed we collected from a concealed side valley in eastern Himalayas, which is always very wet and boggy. Hence the old flowering stems we collected this seed from were growing on a steep bank in the shade of a tall cliff. Taking as long as 7 or 8 years to flower from seed, meanwhile forming a clump of off-set bulbs, which give a continuation as each bulb dies after flowering on stems 2-4m tall, bearing large highly fragrant white trumpets in terminal spikes. Best grown in full to part shade in an acidic humus rich well drained soil. Some recommend a full barrow of well rotted manure to enrich the soil below each bulb, while letting the neck of the bulb to protrude out of the soil, but covering with dry leaves etc. in cold weather.
