Zantedeschia Red alert
£3.50 – £27.50
Zantedeschia ‘Red alert’. A strong red against mottled green, wide foliage. Half hardy. Perennial. Ideal for growing in large pots or containers, can be grown in the ground but needs very well drained soil along with protection from frost.
June – September
1 bulb, 3 bulbs, 9 bulbs
Plant: April. 8 cm deep. Spacing 45 cm. Flowers June-September. Height 40-45 cm.
Frost tender. Perennial. Full sun is essential, as is moist humus-rich soil. For best results start in pots that are no less than 4 lts. in size. Do not water-in after planting. Once the bulb has rooted water and feed generously using a slow release fertilizer. If growing in the ground remove from pots once the foliage has appeared, find a sunny location that has good drainage. Cover over with a good blanket of compost during the winter months.
