Plant Description

Special Features: Decorative foliage and fascinating flowers. Onion-sized flowering buds open to large hemispherical, dark, reddish-purple colored flowers. Decorative foliage. Lush, tropical-looking, reseeds in the garden for long term use. A striking architectural plant either alone or in small groups. Gold Medal prize winner at Plantarium in Boskoop, Holland, 1993.
Historical: The first seeds were obtained from the National Arboretum, USA. In 1992 we first included this species (true seed, originally from Korea), in our collection, offering at first only small packets. It was an immediate success. This very unusual dark red angelica had never before been seen in Germany.

Sowing Direction:

(8) These perennial seeds germinate very irregularly over a long period. Lower temperatures of less than +5°C [41°F] are very effective. Seed trays should not be discarded prematurely. Constant moisture must be maintained. Do not leave in direct sunlight. For Alstroemeria we recommend to keep sowing for 3 weeks at approximately +30°C [86°F], then 3 weeks at +5°C [41°F], then at +21°C [70°F].

Best Sowing Date
(northern Hemisphere, Field condition):
late autumn - early spring
Sowing to Germination: 4 - 8 weeks
Germination to Transplant: 4 - 8 weeks
Transplanting to Potting: 6 - 10 weeks
Cutting back at Transplanting: Not Necessary.
Container Size(s): 1-2 plugs per 11/12 cm (4 1/2") / 2-3 plugs per 15 cm (6")
Vernalization: A prudent recommendation would be to provide 6-12 weeks at an average daily temperature of 40°F (5°C). Exposure to cold may not be necessary for flowering but might improve quality.
Forcing: This species is not a suitable candidate for forcing.
Fertilizer: Medium (150-200 ppm)
