Cardiocrinum cordatum - BSWJ11069

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From seed we collected in the autumn of 2005 from the mountainous forests of Hiroshima, Japan. Where this unusual form had borne a bountiful display of flowers on tall stems over 3m tall in the moist coniferous forest. A rare species to cultivation, taking 9 years or more to flower from seed, meanwhile forming a clump of off-set bulbs, which give a continuation, as each bulb dies after flowering. With large glossy cordate basal leaves, below the scented squarish white trumpet lilies, held on upright stems 1 to 2m tall. Best in full to part shade in an acidic humus rich, well drained soil. Easier to cultivate in warmer drier climates than C. gigantea.
