These beautiful and extremely ‘showy’ bulbs display the interesting habit of sending up their stems, crowned with gorgeous pink flowers while the rest of the plant is dormant. Hence the common name of Naked Lady.
After the flowering, they look dormant once again but then leaf up to a fully strappy plant similar to a Hippeastrum.
This foliage feeds the bulb, enlarging it to a massive size over years.
The bulbs on offer are planted into tubestock pots for convenient posting and will not flower this year. (view image)
Plant with the neck of the bulb above the soil surface and about 30cm apart.
The bulbs need to be well watered during their active growing period and dry when they are dormant.
They tolerate frost but prefer protection from heavy frosts.
Flowering time can be any time from Summer to Autumn depending on your geography.
Bulbs are posted ‘bare rooted’ when they are in a dormant state. Depending on the season when you order.
Bulbs cannot be posted to Western Australia, Tasmania or Overseas (outside Australia) and are included in the ‘plants’ postage selection.
