The Giant Flame Lily has large sword shaped bright green leaves to 1.5 metres long and spectacular large red globular flowers that occur on terminal flower spike up to 6m high.
Endemic to New South Wales.
Prefers a light well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought resistant but frost tender.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C.
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
