Growing Conditions: Thrives in shade or sun.
Flower: Exotic red flowers with yellow tips. They’re kind of like fireworks and they flower around July 4th. (Note, in many southern gardens, blood lily flowers diminish over the years.)
Leaves: Impressive, wide leaves look almost like hosta leaves on a stalk. Leaves are about 15 inches tall, lush and thick, and impressive in the shade garden even when the plant isn’t in flower.
How to plant: The bulbs thrive mixed in other ground covers. I have a nice planting mixed into silver Lamium.
Where to plant: Zone 8! Columbia, Aiken, Augusta, and South! Plant in shade among very low-growing plants. You want to see the form, the stem, and the structure of this plant. Or plant in a pot and keep this as a winter dormant container plant. Note that sometimes these diminish with time so plan to plant a few every other year or so.
Our Bulbs: We ship 3 mature bulbs per order.
