Flowers: September-March. Plant in part shade. HxS 60x60cm
This kaffir lily has cherry-red flowers all autumn and occasionally during mild winters, which are most years here in West Wales. It is hardy, and enjoys a rich moist soil, also being very tolerant of north facing situations, where it remains semi-evergreen. An excellent plant for waterside positions or in the border. The leaves are sword shaped and similar to Crocosmia. Formerly called Schizostylis but has had a name change. Pot size 1.5 litre.
Our plants have always been grown organically in peat-free compost, without the use of chemical pesticides or artificial fertilisers. We have been recognised as a top 100 company in the Green Guide to Wales, have had a Green Dragon Environmental Award since 2007 and received the 2014 Environmental Excellence Award from Horticulture Wales. We use recycled materials wherever possible. Our compost is Melcourt Sylvamix specially mixed for Penlan Perennials with better drainage for our wet winters. This year we are also changing our pots from black to taupe for recycling purposes.
Our ‘Overwintering Service’ operates between 1 November – 28 February each year. If you order during this period we will hold your plants for you and send them as soon as the weather is suitable for planting in early March. Of course, if you want them straight away we will still send them immediately. Some plants listed at this time of year may be newly potted for spring so would not be sent until then unless you have your own winter protection such as a polytunnel or greenhouse.
Excellent quality. I ordered 3 plants which have arrived quickly, well packed and are well furnished with growth. Would recommend anyone try Penlan FIRST!

I have just received my order from Penlan Perennials Nursery.
I live in Europe which makes delivery harder, however, the box of plants (24 plants in all) arrived within a few days in very good condition. Inside the box the plants were packed very well and had not suffered from the journey.
The plants themselves were all still nice and damp and as I unpacked them I found all were labelled individually. The plants are all very healthy and green and of good sized, well established plants.
I am very pleased with both the packing and plants and would certainly recommend them to anyone. This is infact the 2nd order I have had from Penlan and although the nursery has changed hands in between, this order was equally as good as the first. Both owners having gone the extra mile to please!

Wonderful speedy service from Penlan Perennials. Arrived the day after despatch. Plants large and in excellent condition. I am sure they will be as good as Cloud Nine which I bought last year. Cannot wait to see them in flower.

Delighted with my four plants of Filipendula purpurea Elegans which arrived in perfect condition. Well wrapped and packaged, and very speedy delivery. Can’t wait to watch them grow! Would definitely recommend this seller.

I ordered 2 of the Actaea simplex Black Negligee, both arrived earlier that expected which was great. They were packaged so well that when opened they were in perfect condition, no breakages, the compost was moist, the plants themselves were larger and stronger than I expected. In fact they were perfect really happy with them. I would certainly recommend these plants as an addition to your garden. I will also be purchasing more plants of different varieties with confidence in the future.

Plants arrived well packed and in extremely good condition,bearing in mind how hot it was, they weren’t even wilted. The plants are a good size and look pretty healthy, I shall wait for some cooler weather before planting, but they look very happy, as am I. Many thanks

Plants arrived this morning, look very healthy and bigger than I was expecting. Well packed and very fast delivery times. This is the first time I’ve bought from Penlan but won’t be the last.

How wonderful to receive my plant order the day after ordering them. They are just shaking themselves out and acclimatising to my garden near Wimbledon, a good way from their birth place! They are fab, and I am so impressed by your service that I’ve just ordered a few more. Thank you for my prompt and good condition geraniums.
