Cardiocrinum giganteum are native to the Himalayas and westwards to Nepal , a truly stunning plant when in flower which as they are monocarpic they do only once, the main stem will then die but small bulbs will remain at the base and will mature to flower in 5 years. Seeds will take 7 years to reach maturity so this is a long term project but oh so worth the wait! sow seed as fresh as possible and cover with grit, they will need a period of warmth at 15c ( 3 weeks) , then 0-5c ( 3-6 weeks), then back into warmth till germinated, or you can just leave them out and let nature take it's course. Don't throw the seed tray away after 12 months as they may still appear after 2yrs.

Sorry there's no picture at the moment! Arisaema flavum is a shorter yellow arisaema that can cope with our outdoor conditions as long as it's well drained in the winter. Happiest in the shade but it can cope with some sun so it's really quite an easy species to grow.
Seeds should be soaked in water for 24 hours before sowing at any time of year and best kept in a cold frame or unheated greenhouse/polytunnel.
Seeds supplied 15 per packet.
