Almost evergreen. We move them now when they are virtually dormant. This is our Farrer Medal winning plant which is hardy but  grows best under glass. The flowers never achieve quite such huge proportions outside. The leaves are wider than S.peruviana. Distinct. the bulbs need to be left undisturbed to acheive their full potential.
