CE01917 Cardiocrinum giganteum 10 seeds 2.31

Originally called Lilium giganteum, this marvellous plant is the giant among them, as the name suggests. Liliaceae is found worldwide, but the true lilies are northern hemisphere, temperate plants. This group of giant lilies is found in the Sino-Himalaya. Cardiocrinum giganteum comes from the Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan into north-west Burma and south-west China, whilst its variation in Yunnan, with bronze coloured stems and more green in the flower, is called subspecies yunnanense. Other species are C. cathayanum from central to east China; and C. cordatum, from Sakhalin Island and Japan, completes the range.Cardiocrinum giganteum has cordate, glossy, bright green, long-stalked, basal and stem leaves. The stout flowering stems are green and in our case range from 3m (9 feet) to 5m (15 feet). This group was planted about 5 years ago in a rich leafy compost having been raised from seed from our own garden seed. There are 10 plants in full flower in mid July. The flowers are white with maroon stripes and are about 12" long. Each stem has about 12 to 15 flowers at the top of the spike and are scented. These stems will flower, seed and die, but each will produce daughter bulbils which in time will build up to a size when they too will flower.
