Jacobean or Aztec Lily - Sprekelia (Sprekelia formosissima)
1 bulb potted as tube stock from our gardens for $6.50.
Large and flamboyant is the only way to describe the scarlet orchid-like flowers of the Jacobean Lily. Even though the flowers are on shorter stems (around 30cm) they still are an excellent cut flower. These plants prefer full sun and well drained soil and are very easy to grow, even in pots. Established clumps can flower twice, once spring and a second flush in summer.
