"Copper Sierra Leone Lily" Rosette of rubbery lance leaves, a coppery tone in good ligh, with showy orangy red petioles to create a dramatic specimen houseplant. Will be equally effective as an addition to your summer patio container creations with this combination of perfect habit & hard to find coloration. Controversy suggests that this flashy creature may be a selection of C. orchidantheroides; whatever, this is full of spit and drama, rivaling the showy wide flared Neoregelias in your display. Not tolerant of any chill. Sometimes in short supply due to time involved in growing this, so please INQUIRE about availability before ordering.
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
