Virginia Bunchflower has large white flowers on a tall, erect stalk above broad, glossy foliage. The stalk is densely covered with fine hairs. Virginia Bunchflower Lily grows on wet prairies in the US and is a nice addition for wildflower gardens with humus rich, always slightly moist soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot

Veratrum virginicum Bunchflower Lily germination can be slow and erratic even for seed sown when it was fresh, it usually takes place within 3 - 12 months at 15c but can be much longer. Sow the seed thinly so that it can be grown on in the pot without disturbance for the first couple of years. Give an occasional liquid feed in the growing season to ensure the plants do not become nutrient deficient. The plant produces just one seed leaf in its first year, this forms an over-wintering bulb.  It takes up to 10 years for the plant to reach maturity
