Schizostylis coccinea - Kaffir Lily

Schizostylis coccinea produces color late in the season when it is often hard to find. Fall blooming plants can keep a garden interesting and colorful and these plants are to be treasured. The Kaffir lily prefers a moist but well drained garden. The leaves look much like a small gladiolus. The Kaffir Lily grows to 12-14" tall. Schizostylus coccinea will grow in full sun but seems to grow better with partial shade. The Kaffir Lily is tender when temperatures dip into the high 20°s F.
