Attractive seed-heads, Flowers
Back in Black is a new variety of the traditional blue African lily. The large heads of dark blue flowers are complemented by dark almost black stems. As the flowers fade they are followed by black seeds heads that create a dramatic, architectural effect. These last well when cut or dried for the house. Grow in moist but well-drained soil in a sunny spot. In colder area, put on a dry mulch in winter. Alternatively, plant in large pots and move to a sheltered spot during bad weather.
