These form above the strap-shaped glossy green leaves on top of sturdy upright stems and can last for several weeks before they start to fade. A taller variety that makes a big impact when planted in bold swathes or potted up into substantial pots.
- 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.
