Plant / Product Features:
Rare and beautiful lily which has brilliant red bottlebrush flowers and flax-like leaves. Best planted in a container where roots can be restricted as this mimics natural conditions and will help the plant flower more quickly and prolifically. Dislikes wet feet, deep shade and frost. Requires very dry or free draining soil. Blackening at the base of the leaves or excessive yellowing of a well fed plant is an indication of too much moisture. Spray with a systemic fungicide and solve the poor drainage. Maintenance free in the right spot. Fertilise with a liquid organic fertiliser high in phosphate and nitrogen.

Landscaping Uses:
Excellent pot specimen on a north or west facing deck. Make sure the pot has no tray under it and is not too big for the plant as it will hold excessive moisture. Stunning plant when in flower. Great plant for tropical effect. In areas with high rainfall plant under the eave of a roof or on the sunny side of an established tree.
