Paris sp. (6’ tall) x 'Heronswood Form' (Whorled Honey Flower)

Family:  Melanthiaceae
Zone: 5 - 9
Natural Range: Hybrid
Soil:  Moist, humus rich
Light:  Part shade
Attributes:  Deciduous.  Paris polyphylla 'Heronswood Form' grows to 36"-40" tall has golden petals.  This form clumps up better than most other forms.  Paris sp. grows to more than 6' tall and never sends any additional offsets.  When pollinated the pods crack open revealing bright orange fruit.
Notes:  We have been crossing these two unique varieties both directions and have resulted in several years of good seedling crops.  These plants have not flowered yet and I imagine that it will still be a couple of years before flowering.  I am hoping that the offspring will result in a taller plant that offsets more readily.

Pot Size:  4" Band Pot
