How to plant besseras
Besseras are exotic perennials also known as coral drops, sporting eye-catching clusters of pendant, freesia-like flowers held on elegant stems above attractive grass-like foliage. Native to Mexico, these sun lovers are perfect planted in the warm, south-facing border.
Plant around 6-8 cm deep in well-drained soil in full sun — allowing for around 25-50 corms per square meter. Provide a deep mulch for winter protection or lift and store corms indoors.
Always unpack on arrival and store in a cool place until ready to plant.

Besseras do not usually suffer from any serious diseases or pest problems.
