Baking in the heat on a raised terrace with flower spikes hitting two plus metres in height this Watsonia x longifolia is an elegant sight. It can be seen growing in the confines of the alpine area from where Elspeth promises to select a suitable planting site in the Garden and with due care and attention move the corms during the winter. Disliking disturbance it may then take a year or two to settle before annually producing tall flowering spikes of pink petalled flowers.
