Bush Park’s Featured Plant Oct.10

Hesperantha (Schizostylis) coccinea (aka Kaffir Lily), a member of the Iris family, is a perennial bulb native to South Africa. This vigorous, clump-forming plant likes moist but well-drained soil and sun. Great for autumn color at the front of the garden border or pond. Its star-shaped flowers have been known to last past Christmas here. You’ll find ours in the garden bed south of the Bush Barn Art Center.
