Mauve Majesty - a spectacular clump forming cultivar that appears to flower from May to frost; 2 1/2 - 3' tall; from the breeding program of Dr. Mark Bridgen at Cornell University; plug. This item will not be available until the beginning to mid April.

This is NOT an 'instant gratification group' but one that often gets better with age, just like the rest of us! Native to South America, these long-lasting cut flowers have clusters of azalea- or orchid-like flowers that are often found in vases on the tables of our favorite restaurants. Prefers full sunlight, well-drained, humus-rich soil and in areas where the summers are extremely hot, a layer of mulch fosters a uniform soil temperature for longer bloom; or plant in full sun in whz 5-6; in light shade in whz 7-9. (We want to learn more ways to successfully bloom the bulbous types in various areas of our country before we offer them again.)
