River Lily Description

Brings beauty and colour to fall gardens..
Appearing in the landscape well after most perennials have called it quits for the year, River Lily creates a lush and colourful display from early to late fall. Starlike florets of vibrant red to crimson march up one side of each tall stem, similar to gladiolus. This unusual form makes River Lilies ideal for cut-flower arrangements or bouquets. Their easy-grow nature makes them a natural choice for group plantings in borders or garden beds. In cooler climates, plants should be lifted after the last blooms of autumn.Schizostylis coccinea
