Native of Africa. Grows to over a meter tall. Flowers are deep blue or violet to blue in large shapely umbels. The flower heads are borne high above the leaves. They sway in the breeze and up a spectacular show. It is an evergreen lily that does not go into dormancy - in warm regions. A must have for gardens as the unusually held and colored flowers are a real treat.
Very fast growing and easy to grow plant. Choose a location either in full sunlight - or where full sunlight is there for at least half a day. Good fertile, well drained soil is important. Planting 3 to 5 plants next to each other makes it look fuller. There are more number of flower heads too!
