Popular in English gardens, Schizostylis 'Major' has bold, deep red flowers that emerge over a long period during the August through November blooming season when most other flowering plants start to go dormant. Schizostylis is a vigorous, clump-forming perennial in zones 7-9 but it also makes an ideal container plant to brighten the short days of the year. This Award of Merit winner from the Royal Horticultural Society is generally pest-free, and grows best in moist, fertile soil.

OMG! still blooming before Christmas! Review by Kay
How do you rate this product?
This is a gorgeous plant! and deer leave it alone as well. It is stunning to have something like this blooming deep in mid-winter! I have a ton of hummingbirds (I also have 14 hummingbird feeders as well) but I wanted something they would like in addition to blooming later than most things. I never expected them to get big and thick and continue to bloom through tons of rain here in the PNW and wind...we have windy falls and winter with gusts up to 42 mph...still the blooms hold and it keeps on blooming. I think this is going to bloom all winter into spring! definitely 5 star!!! (Posted on 12/18/2015)
