Thanks Moon Growe, I think its very beautiful and would love to try to grow one. I am hopeless with bulbs, I did a little search last night and found it difficult to find an established one so I will keep searching.

Hi Marion
This is he link to the EBay seller this will come from china so it may take 2/3 weeks to deliver they is seeds for sale but will take several years to flower

You can also buy Cardiocrinum giganteum without ordering from China, I always worry whether the bulbs have been gathered legally, try Rare Plants who have them for sale in the UK copy and paste url into your web browser - not Google!
