Climbing Butter Lily - Littonia Modesta - Fresh Seeds


Butter Lily - Littonia modesta

This listing is for 5 seeds of this unusual and beautiful member of the Lily family.

This plant is one of the strangest members of the Lily family due to the fact that it is a climber. It has 'tendrils' at the end of it's leaves and when these encounter another branch or a surface that it can latch onto the tendrils attach themselves to this and so the plant climbs.

Not at all hardy, this plant is suitable for pot culture where it may grown up against a trellis in order to see it at its best. The stems, however, are annual and the plant dies back to a tuber in the autumn and may be lifted and stored somewhere free from frost. In this way many more areas may be suitable for growing this truly stunning plant.

This plant bears stunningly beautiful flowers, which resemble those of Asiatic lilies. It is closely related to the Flame Lily (Gloriosa superba) and is often grouped with it due to the similarities.

Growing Instructions

I always sell seeds that I have experience of growing so the instructions provided represent 1st hand experience. These instructions may change over the course of time (as I find out more about the plants and seeds) but the details that you will be provided with, at purchase, represent the latest version. If you have any questions concerning the culture requirements of this or any other item I am selling please contact me and I will be happy to provide extra details you require.

Bidding on more than 1 item?

I will always combine shipping wherever this is possible and all auctions finishing within a SEVEN day period will qualify. If I have not sent an invoice, please e-mail me for a combined invoice when you have finished bidding/buying, doing this will almost certainly save you money.

Due to the varying weights of the seeds it is not possible to apply a standard discount without overcharging for the majority of cases. Additionally I cannot apply a postal discount unless PayPal payments are combined.

Germinating seeds and growing plants are subject to many other factors including the conditions under which they are raised (including but not limited to: Light, moisture, soil, humidity) and the skill of the individual grower. As the vendor, such factors are completely outside of my control and all seeds and plants are supplied on this basis.
