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.

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.
They really worth growing. They can surprise you with flowers almost any month of the year even though mostly in winter. The easiest is ‘Major’. Happy New Year to you too.
