Anthericum ramosum (Branched St Bernard’s Lily) [15 Seeds]

$4.25

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some patience. The easiest approach is to sow the seeds in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about a month before moving it to a cool, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.) The seeds generally sprout best in cool conditions (50° to 60°F), so don’t give them supplemental heat.

Description

Branched St Bernard’s lily (Anthericum ramosum) is an out-of-the-ordinary perennial that produces slender, 24- to 30-inch-tall stems carrying starry white flowers through much of the summer over clumps of narrow, green leaves. The overall effect is something like that of Gaura lindheimeri, but Anthericum ramosum is more tolerant of less-than-perfect drainage. It’s a quietly charming thing for a special spot where you can appreciate it at fairly close range. It can easily get crowded out by rambunctious companions, so consider pairing it with well-behaved partners, such as English lavender (Lavandula angustifolia). Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 5 to 8.

Collected in August 2020. At least 15 seeds.
