Additional Information

Clump forming perennial that in late summer and through autumn produces spikes of gladioli like flowers over grassy foliage. Water Schizostylis coccinea freely over the summer periods, especially during times of drought as they will thrive in moist conditions. During winter, cut back unkempt or damaged stems and foliage to retain a pleasing shape and appearance. Propagate by division in spring every few years to avoid congested clumps. Hardy perennial.

Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
