Anthericum ramosum (Branched St Bernard’s Lily) [15 Seeds]
Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that require a chilling period to initiate germination.
The easiest approach is to sow the seeds 1/4 inch deep in a pot in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring. (The winter-sowing approach works well for these seeds.)
If you sow after February, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about a month. The seeds generally sprout best in cool conditions (50° to 60°F), so don’t give them supplemental heat after you remove them from the refrigerator.
Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

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 dainty, 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 early August 2023. At least 15 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
