Giant Belladonna Lily
This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.
A rare, heritage cross of Amaryllis belladonna x Brunsvigia josephinae that dates back to the early 1900s. Around 20-30 pink flowers with reflexed petals open on a single stem to around one metre, late summer to autumn.
Like Belladonna Lilies, Amarygia are super tough bulbs and are virtually fool proof. You can rely on these tough growers for late season colour. In average conditions up to four flowers will open on a stem and in ideal conditions (and from a mature bulb), up to 30 can bloom. They are drought avoiders, lying dormant through late spring and summer, with the new growth emerging with the late summer/autumn rains. The leaves grow just as the flowering wanes.
Amarygia thrive in any well drained soil and love to bake in the sun. The neck of the bulb should be planted just above or at the soil level. Plant them in a sunny spot, water to establish then you only need bother if rainfall is low. They become dry tolerant once they are established and love a dry summer. If you live where there are hard frosts it is an idea to add a winter mulch. Provide some protection from strong winds during flowering time. Suitable for containers.
