Peruvian Lily - 200 Seeds

Peruvian Lily is a fragant, mixed color perennial that can be grown outside or as a container plant. It is great as a cutflower as it lasts long in a vase and has long stems with handsome foilage and is topped off with a bouquet of different colored 2 inch flowers. To grow Peruvian Lily flower seed, seek the seeds overnight, then plant in potting medium. Lightly cover the seeds and keep moist. Once established, Peruvian Lily's tubers spread rapidly about a foot underground, so might need a deep border to keep the plant from becoming invasive. In Northern climates will need to mulch heavily to keep the plant from freezing.
