Schizostylis

African Lily

These South African evergreen bulbs promise to ease the sadness that comes at summerís end by offering a burst of fresh autumn color.

Blooming on each 18 in. stem above green, sword- shaped blades are 10 to 30 snow white, starlike flowers. We contrast the blooms and foliage with the textured, golden leaves of Geranium ‘Ann Folkard’.

Blooms September – December.

Size: 18" high x 10" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

<i>Schizostylis coccinea</i> ‘Jennifer’

This South African genus of evergreen bulbs promises to ease the sadness that comes at summer's end by offering a burst of fresh autumn color. Slim buds and upfacing soft pink blooms stand amidst an ebullient forest of strapping greenery. Let it flourish in a pot on the patio, where its plentiful flowers are close at hand.

Blooms September–October.

Size: 2' 0" high x 10" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

<i>Schizostylis coccinea</i> ‘Sunrise’

With an extended blooming period and bigger blossoms than most other Schizostylis, lily-esque ‘Sunrise’ is likely to brighten your Christmas table. Slim buds and deep pink blooms stand amidst an ebullient forest of strapping greenery. Let it flourish in a pot on the patio, where its plentiful flowers are close at hand.

Blooms September–December.

Size: 15" high x 10" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

<i>Schizostylis coccinea</i> ‘Zeal Salmon’

This South African Iris relative splashes lusty deep salmon-pink hues upon the late season garden. Springing from rhizomatous roots, grassy leafed blades present slender spikes garnished with narrow pointed buds plus satiny, cup-shaped Gladiola-like blooms, which open wider as the day progresses. ‘Zeal Salmon’ is exemplary atop a stone wall, along stairs, near the front of the border or in a container where it prefers evenly moist fertile soil.

Blooms September–October

Size: 15" high x 10" wide.

Hardy to zone 6.

Spring salutations, early blooms, fresh unfurling foliage!

These early blooming vines and shrubs herald spring!

A choice deciduous shrub for an adequately moist woodland setting, Corylopsis pauciflora offers dangling fragrant primrose-yellow blooms amid graceful branches. The Flowering Current produces long lasting richly colored flowers, bird-friendly berries plus eye-catching autumn color. It thrives in both sun or part shade and handles some drought. 

Easily grown Clematis alpina ‘Constance’ is a small-statured climber that can be showcased in a tight spot or in a patio container. Beloved by gardeners since 1900, Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’ combines lustrous evergreen foliage with copious vanilla-scented blooms, while appreciating a sheltered abode. Both these vines make lovely additions to early spring bouquets.

Spring Salutations!

We’ve been drenched with nearly 60 inches of rain here at the nursery. All that moisture coupled with several warm sunny days, has turned the garden into a verdant wonderland of unfurling shoots, leaves and blossoms. The perennials photographed in this newsletter were taken this week, either in the garden or in our open-sided greenhouses.

Happy Spring and happy digging!
