Hi. I would like to grow some Cardiocrinum Giganteum in a semi-shaded bed. Could you tell me how many bulbs I would need to fill a roundish area approximately 50 cm in diameter?
Also, if I plant them this February will they flower this year.
Thanks

Hi there,
Cardiocrinum Giganteum will be happy in a semi-shaded area and yes, they will flower this year. I would suggest planting one bulb in a 50cm diameter area.

Kind regards

Pot Size for Cardiocrinum Giganteum

This question was asked by

Hello, could these stunning Cardiocrinum Giganteum lilies be planted in a pot and how big would this need to be. I have never seen this lily before and would like to be able to grow it but do not have a suitable spot direct into the garden.

We would recommend potting your Cardiocrinum Giganteum bulbs in a 12inch pot.

Cardiocrinum giganteum like most soil types. They prefer the soil to be moist but well drained and humus-rich. These lilies like a shady position where the direct sunlight will not burn their leaves.

How to plant Cardiocrinum Giganteum bulbs

I have just received the most magnificent Cardiocrinum Giganteum bulbs from you and want to make sure they get the right start. How deep should they be planted and how much watering is required before and after planting?

We’re glad you’re happy with your Cardiocrinum Giganteum bulbs. Aren’t the bulbs just fantastic! You will need to plant the Cardiocrinum Giganteum bulbs with just the tip of the bulb showing (like how we’ve supplied it in the pot) and they only need to be moderately watered. Do not be tempted to over water them. They will need to planted outside now. Happy planting!
