The Sprekelia Formosissima is a real jewel of a flower and planted en masse in your garden will give you a rich showing. Also known as the Aztec or Jacobean Lily, it is part of the Amaryllis family rather than that of the lilies. The Formosissima produces brilliant red flowers that are about 13 cm or 5 inch wide, and seem to blend lilies and orchids in their design.

Sprekelia Formosissima will attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators to your summer patio or garden!

The lower three petals are rolled together at their base, and unfold lower down to form a serving surface for downward pointing stamens, while the top three enjoy total independence. This results in an unusual two part bloom which stands aloof over its foliage on a similar way that orchids do.
