Sandersonia aurantiaca, or golden lily of the valley, is a charming perennial that produces clusters of light orange bell-shaped flowers on arching stems in late spring or early summer. These delicate flowers look like little lanterns and have a sweet fragrance that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Sandersonia aurantiaca is native to South Africa and needs a sunny and sheltered position to thrive. Sandersonia aurantiaca bulbs should be planted in mid-March; they like well-drained soil enriched with organic matter. In cold areas, start in pots in the greenhouse using a mix of John Innes No.2 and sharp river sand. Protect the plants from frost in winter and store them somewhere dry and cool. Sandersonia aurantiaca bulbs are ideal for adding colour and charm to rockeries, borders, or containers.
