Doryanthes Excelsa Gymea Flame Lily Seeds

Doryanthes Excelsa Gymea Flame Lily is a fast growing and hardy perennial bladed grass most often grown in landscaping applications for its large strappy foliage and stunningly beautiful large flame red flower spikes. The variety Doryanthes Excelsa Gymea Flame Lily is grown as a screening plant, in mass-plantings in hard-wearing or difficult areas such as beside buildings or fences and is often planted by local councils along nature or median strips as well as roundabouts where it is typically difficult to get other things to grow. Doryanthes Excelsa Gymea Flame Lily plants are non-invasive, generally clump into 1m x 1.2m mounds of arching blades of spectacular foliage and provide an excellent contrast for structural features (walls, edging, water feature) or exemplify the colour of flowering plants in the garden. Doryanthes Excelsa Gymea Flame Lily is a native Australian plant with its indigenous distribution concentrated in eastern New South Wales. This extremely versatile plant as it is drought tolerant, will grow in a range of soils ranging from sandy through to clay and will also handle reasonable periods of wetness in the root zone, although not the ideal environment.
