Dainty pink bell-shaped flowers dangle from arching flower spikes reminiscent of a fishing rod over a still pool. Clumps of foliage which grow to 90x90cm.The flowering 'wands' at 1.8m tall hold the flowers above the foliage. They prefer a heavier soil which does not dry out completely.Frost:Hardy. Flowering time: Spring/Summer although they may not flower in the first year during which time they establish themselves. Preferred Aspect: Full sun Ideal climates: Cool to temperate. Pruning/After flowering care: For the sake of neatness you can cut away any messy foliage but otherwise leave alone. Fertilising: Feed annually with a general purpose fertiliser each Spring. Uses and Comments: Once established these plants soon form a lovely dense clump. They can get overcrowded (indicated by a decreasing amount of flowers). When this happens dig up the bulbs, divide them into smaller clumps & spread out. They will not flower in that year. Posted & supplied bare-rooted.
