Cardiocrinum giganteum v. yunnanense - BWJ8180

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
One of the most luxurious forms of the genus, which I collected the seed of in the company of Dan Hinkley in the mountains above Baoxing (China) in the autumn of 2000. Taking 7-9 years to flower from seed, meanwhile forming a clump of off-set bulbs, which give a continuation as each bulb dies after flowering. With large luxurious basal leaves which are heavily bronzed, below the highly scented creamy-white purple throated trumpet lilies, on stems 1.5-4m depending on how rich a condition it can be availed. Best in full to part shade in an acidic humus rich moisture retentive, but well drained soil.
