This is a stunning new variety of African lily with large globes of intense blue flowers from July to September on dark almost black stems. As the flowers fade they are followed by black seedheads that look dramatic and architectural. You can even cut and dry them for flower arrangements. Ideal for a sunny well-drained border.
- Garden care: Keep well-watered during the growing season applying a balanced liquid fertiliser each month from spring until the plant flowers. In cold exposed areas protect the crown of the plant with a deep dry winter mulch.
