Cardiocrinum giganteum

13th March 2011

The Giant Himalayan Lily is a wonderful thing and I have wanted to grow it in the garden for many years. Somehow I have never got around to it. This seedling turned up at a plant sale and I had a good reason to stop prevaricating. I planted it in the woodland among the snowdrops and it grows at exactly the wrong season to fit in with them. All things considered, it has been a little unfortunate but I am determined to leave it alone until it flowers and then find somewhere more suitable for it.
