Australian Iris and Lily members

In this category you find several Australian members of the Iridaceae and Liliaceae families, as well as some allies. All are perennials with showy, bright colored flowers and evergreen, iris like, narrow, and sword or grass shaped leaves. For being cold resistant, but not winter hardy in Central Europe these should be grown as pot plants in any fertile, humus-rich, well drained soil in full sun (winter) to partial shade (summer). In winter reduce watering to a minimum and keep plants at a minimum of some 10°C. Excellent for the unheated wintergarden or the cool greenhouse.
Sow seeds flat in any humus-rich, slightly sandy or rocky, well drained substrate at some 20°C. After germination keep pots slightly drier and especially in winter in full sun.
20 seeds per package.
