C tricarinata is an excellent species for a UK garden. Grows well in an organic soil in semi-shade. Tolerant of very cold frosts. It produces tall stems with well spaced flowers in late April. It does not bulk up as fast as hybrids but appears to be long lived. Unlike some of the hybrids this species tends to slowly lose their leaves in the autumn. The plants offered have two to five flower buds. They make good plants for a cold shady greenhouse. Responds to heavy feeding throughout the season.
Plants can be sent out from July to March.
All plants are fully checked when sent out to ensure quality and they are disease free. Any complaints should be made within 14 days of receipt.
