Plant details

The pleated, sword-like leaves of this easy to grow summer-flowering bulb add drama to the border from spring to autumn. In July and August they are joined by large sprays of small orange flowers. Plants should be grown in a sunny position with moist but well-drained soil. They are hardy in most gardens, but in colder areas they may need some winter protection.
