Schizostylis deserves to be much better known for its ability to bloom in autumn and puts on a good show despite worsening weather. The plants resemble small clumps of fragile gladioli with long thin foliage and upright flower-spikes, each topped by several flowers like wide open crocus. This variety has pale-pink flowers, 5cm (2in) across. Grow it in small clumps to make a really impressive display. Blooms also last well as cut flowers. The RHS has awarded this plant its prestigious Award ofn Garden Merit.
