Cardiocrinum Giganteum (Giant Himalayan Lily) is an impressive flower that can reach up to 8 feet in height when fully grown. It produces large, white trumpet shaped flowers that bloom in late summer and have a decidedly sweet smell. Native to the Himalayan mountain range and parts of China, it is also known as the giant Himalayan lily.
To grow Cardiocrinum giganteum you will need to plant with the dry bulb side down and about 5 inches deep into well drained soil. This should be done in either spring or fall for best results. After planting, water regularly during the first year to help encourage new growth. Additionally, fertilize once every two months using a balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 during the growing season. Once it has been established, you can reduce the frequency of watering and fertilizing.
It is important to note that Cardiocrinum giganteum will not flower until its third year, so be patient! In colder climates, it’s a good idea to provide a thick layer of mulch each autumn to insulate the bulbs from frost. With proper planting and care, you should be rewarded with stunningly beautiful flowers in no time at all.
A truly magnificent sight.
