Schizostylis coccinea 'Sunrise'


Availability : Available

Description :

Final beauty before the winter.

Schizostylis 'Sunrise' was produced by English breeder Paul Smith. From October to the first frosts this flag lily gives us sublime, large and vibrant salmon-pink star flowers.

Tall and generous, sometimes in need of a little staking for support, we like to plant it in a pink palette with asters (Aster 'Cyrille', Aster 'Pink Star'), Chrysanthemums (Chrysanthemum 'Clara Curtis) or Japanese anemones. And complement this with the coppery red foliage of Miscanthus sinensis 'Ghana'.

Grow in the sun or light shade in good, sandy, humus-rich, moist garden soil. Avoid heavy, damp soils.

A bit more information:

it's only very recently that the Schizostylis genus (with its sole species S. coccinea) has been incorporated in the Hesperantha genus, which includes a set of bulbous perennials from South Africa. S. coccinea is close to the irises and found along riverbanks in southeast South Africa. (bankside plant).

Eric Smith, The Plantsmen. We are indebted to this extraordinary gardener for several famous cultivars, including Hosta 'Alcyon', Brunnera 'Hadspen Cream', Symphytum 'Goldsmith', Anemone 'Haspen Abundance', Bergenia 'Bartok', Rheum palmatum 'Ace of Hearts' and Agapanthus 'Blue Moon'.
