Aztec lily

I had previously tried growing this plant in numerous well drained settings: Sun, part shade, well watered, dry. Little success. This year, I planted Sprekelia on a sunny, steep north slope, north facing, well drained, mulched heavily with pine needles, and well watered. Voila!!! Almost immediately after planting shoots appeared. Then the first bloom, then a second!! In July, the plant still has its foliage which continues to grow. Impressed, to say the least. I am awaiting next year to see if it returns in my Zone 5 garden.

Took a few years to get growing. A few summers ago I had several of these bloom. I had forgotten I planted them and now have have enough to divide. Very exotic flowers. They bloom as shown - close to soil level, but can be seen because of their bright red color. They are very showy in a cluster. The flowers keep well in a vase, which was a very pleasant surprise. Like it hot and not very wet. I live in the Central Valley of California and they have survived freezing temperatures to 20 degrees and some very hot summers.
