Description

Beautiful clear pink schizostylis which is superbly perennial and long-flowering in full sun in almost any soil.

Hesperantha are clump-forming rhizomes, sent out in bags with loose soil to help keep them fresh. On arrival, if you are not ready to plant them straight away, open the tops of the bags and spray the clumps with water regularly to keep them from drying out. Divide the large clump into smaller sections when you are ready to plant them. They will establish and spread quite quickly.

Care Tips

Be patient if flowering is poor in the first year. Flowers best after wet summer. Deadhead to prolong flowering. Cut down stems after flowering.
