Sprekelia Formosissima (“Aztec Lily” or “Jacobean Lily”) have unusual 5” orchid-like flowers that sit on their stems like perching crimson birds. Each stalk produces a single gorgeous bloom with velvety crimson petals, bright contrasting golden stamens and a green throat. Its flowers are funnel-shaped and have six sepals, of which the upper three are slender and outward-facing. They need to be dry when dormant (stop watering when the leaves begin to die back); however, provide some water during periods of new growth. Originally from Mexico and Guatemala, so they are sensitive to cold weather, but easy to grow in small pots. Lift in fall and replant in spring.
