African Lady is a second generation Oriental x nepalense hybrid. We first saw it in a batch of unnamed seedling's which originated from the discontinued breeding programme of 'Sande'. At the time we asked about buying it, but when nothing come of this, we thought it had been lost forever. Then in the Spring of 2012 we were offered bulbs of a new variety called 'African Lady'. We looked at the picture that our supplier had sent us and thought, this looks familiar, then when we were told that it originated from 'Sande' things began to click into place, it was the same hybrid that we admired a few years back. Easy to grow, very strong stems and not too tall only about 80 Cm's, sometimes even shorter, for example in one of our Swiss customers gardens it never gets over 45 Cm's, Flowers from around the middle of July, sweetly scented, not as strong as some other varieties. Supplied as size 18 cm + bulbs.
