A South African member of the Iris family, Schizostylis coccinea 'Major' (or Crimson Flag Lily / Kaffir Lily) is a late summer bloomer that can brighten your garden right through autumn and sometimes still be in bloom close to Christmas. The bright red flowers open wide to the sun, adopting a polite demeanour as they start the day closed and bowed by the dewdrops, stand erect to the sun all day, and again droop their heads as the day closes. Schizostylis can take a few years before it produces a large number of flower spikes!

However, if you’re patient, you could end up with as many as 12 spikes from each stem at a time when little else is colourful. Schizostylis coccinea 'Major' do like water, so don’t leave them thirsty.
