Scadoxus pole-evansii (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Scadoxus pole-evansii (Amaryllidaceae). This is probably the most spectacular of all the Scadoxus species. It is native to the rain forests of Zimbabwe. The flowers are larger than the more familiar species but this is very different. The perianth tube and stamens are larger but significantly the petals are wide – most Scadoxus have only narrow petals. The plants flower in summer and can reach a height of up to 1m. Sowing : Sow seeds as fresh as possible. Do not cover the seeds but simply press them down onto the seedling mixture. Locality : Ex Hort. Date of harvest : March 2017
