A hardy perennial that you can also grow as annual in the north or indoors year-round, Lily of the Nile (African Blue Lily) is a rare and very precious source of blue color for the summer garden! Its big, bloom-happy stalks shoot up 3 feet in the air, leaving the lush foliage far beneath, and open big 3- to 4-inch spheres in all shades of blue and lavender, plus white! You will love this floriferous, easy-to-grow treasure!
The Headbourne Hybrids are among the hardiest Lilies of the Nile you can grow, with large, showy flowers in many shades of blue and lavender, plus white. They are superb in large containers, and make excellent year-round houseplants, their foliage as beautiful as their blooms! Excellent for cutting, they are long-lasting in the vase.
Growing the Headbourne Hybrids from seed is easy to do, but requires patience. The plant will bloom after two or three years and then for many, many years afterwards! Cover the seed lightly to sow, and germinate at about 75 degrees F. Germination takes anywhere from 3 to 5 weeks. Then grow the young plants on in full sun (or very bright light indoors), spacing them 2 feet apart in the garden. After the blooms, attractive seedpods arise to continue the color show! Zones 6-9. Pkt is 25 seeds.
