Late year flowers – Kaffir Lilies

When we revamped our wildlife pond after discovering its leak, we also took apart our bog garden alongside it and replanted it with new plants. We decided to feature Hesperantha previously known as Schizostylus.

This lovely little collection are adding delicate colour to our bog garden during the last two months of the year. Different shades of reds and pinks are provided by Hesperantha coccinea ‘Major’, H. c. ‘Oregon Sunset’, H. c. ‘Wilfred H. Bryant’ and H. c. ‘Pink Princess’. We are now in search of a good white flowered Hesperanthus to finish the effect.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

These are just beautiful, Malc. I think this is the first year I’ve ever been aware of Kaffir lilies. They are great to provide color at this time of year. Happy New Year.
