Description

Hesperantha coccinea 'Fenland Daybreak' is a stunning pink-flowered cultivar, with flecks and veins of darker pink on the star-shaped blooms. Flowering is from late August through to the first of the frosts in October with a succession of blooms opening up one after another.

Hesperantha appreciates a sunny sheltered location with a well drained gritty but fertile soil and will quickly form a clump, spreading by rhizomatous bulbils.

Still known by it synonym Schizostylis coccinea 'Fenland Daybreak' by many.
