Hesperantha, formally known as Schizostylis, are incredibly valuable for bringing bursts of colour to gardens during the late summer to autumn months. They fit in well with cottage; prairie and modern garden styles. These flowers with their iris-like foliage are also good for cutting.

 

Ensure hesperantha are well-fed with compost and fertiliser to encourage strong stems and bright flowers. During cold winters mulch to keep healthly. Dislikes cold, wet gardens in winter. Plants can double up as pond or marginal plants. Is a very slow-grower but well worth the wait. Divide occasionally. Also known as Kaffir lillies.
