Anthericum Liliago - Hardy Perennial
Author: John Wood
Anthericum Liliago Described.
Anthericum Liliago - St. Bernard's Lily; Nat. Ord. Liliaceæ.
This may be grown as a companion to St. Bruno's Lily, though not so neat in habit or rich in bloom. In all respects it is very different. It is taller, the flowers not half the size, and more star-shaped, foliage more grassy, and the roots creeping and jointed.
A beginner plant that can be exposed to full sun in well-drained and light soils.
A fleshy-rooted, rhizomatous perennial from grassy hillsides in areas of central and southern Europe, Turkey and Africa.
All the Anthericums named by me will do in ordinary soil, but prefer a fat loam of considerable depth. If, therefore, such conditions do not exist, there should be a good dressing of well-rotted stable manure turned in, and a mulching given in early spring.
Anthericums are propagated by division of the roots, which should be carefully performed during the autumn. After such mutilation they should not be disturbed again for three years, or they will deteriorate in vigour and beauty.
Flowering period, June and July.
