Schizostylis cocc. 'Major
Stiff, upright stems of large, deep red, gladiolus-like flowers from August to November above narrow, mid-green leaves.
These eye-catching kaffir lilies provide vertical interest and a late splash of colour when many summer flowers are coming to a close.
Perfect for a sheltered sunny, moist but well-drained border, they make excellent cut flowers.
Lovely near a pond
