This is a herbaceous, perennial plant producing a cluster of upright stems up to 90cm tall from an underground, tuberous rootstock. The roots spread, forming in time quite a large clump of growth. Flowers are lily-like, in variable colours from red, purple, orange to pink, and are frequently used in floral arrangements, where the long vase-life is highly prized.

For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Seeds are best sown in individual pots in a cold frame. Pre-soak stored seed for 12 hrs in warm water, warm stratify for 4 weeks at 25C and then reduce the temperature to 10C. Seedlings can be planted out into their permanent positions in late summer or autumn. Grow in moist but well-drained, fertile soil in full sun or part shade. Where not reliably hardy, protect with a dry mulch in winter.
