Flax Lily is a small tropical and subtropical genus in the Flax family (Phormiaceae) with a main distributional range in Africa, Australia, Tasmania, Indonesia, and New Zealand. They are evergreen perennials with iris like, long leaves in a dense basal rosette and elegant racemes with loosely arranged small flowers followed by most ornamental, bright colored berries. They can be successfully 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 15°C. Excellent pot plants for the cool wintergarden or temperate 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.
