Organic miniature agapanthus

The Triteleia brodiaea 'Corrina' is a beautiful flower that blooms from late spring to summer and is also known as 'Triplet lily'. With its narrow leaves and a stem of about 40 centimeters high, it bears an umbellifer flower with about 10 enchanting blue, star-shaped flowers. Due to these characteristics, it is also called 'miniature agapanthus' because of its similarity to the agapanthus.

The Triteleia brodiaea 'Corrina' is a reliable perennial that returns faithfully year after year, when planted in well-drained soil. Whether you choose to plant in a pot or in the garden, this versatile beauty is sure to shine.

How, where and when do I plant Triteleia flowerbulbs?

The flowerbulbs are planted in the ground from September to March. Prepare the soil by loosening it and removing any clumps. If necessary, enrich the soil with compost or organic matter to improve drainage and nutritional value.

Choose a suitable location for planting Triteleia flowerbulbs. They thrive in both sunny and partially shaded areas. Make sure that the soil is well-drained and does not remain too wet.

Dig a hole about 2-3 times as deep as the height of the bulb. For Triteleia bulbs, a planting depth of about 5-7 centimeters is usually suitable. Maintain a planting distance of approximately 5-8 centimeters between each flowerbulb. This gives the plants plenty of room to grow and multiply. Place the Triteleia bulb in the planting hole with the pointed side up. Cover the bulb with soil and press lightly to ensure it is firmly planted in the ground. After planting, water the flowerbulbs well so that the soil is moist. This helps the bulbs to root.

Care of the Triplet Lily

Allow the plant to die completely. Provide annual feeding for optimal results. After a few years, dig up the flowerbulbs and distribute the new small bulbs in other places. Make sure that the soil does not remain too wet during the resting period of the bulbs. Triteleia bulbs need well-drained soil to prevent rot. Remove wilted flowers and keep the area around the bulbs free of weeds.

Triteleia 'Corrina' needs regular water during the growing season, especially during dry periods. Make sure the soil remains evenly moist, but avoid waterlogging.

It is recommended to fertilize Triteleia 'Corrina' once a year in early spring, before flowering begins. This will provide the plants with the necessary nutrients for healthy growth and flowering. We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!

After flowering, the wilted flower stems can be cut off. However, leave the leaves intact, because the plant stores energy in the leaves for the next growth cycle. The foliage may gradually wilt and wither as the summer progresses.

Triteleia 'Corrina' is hardy, but it may be useful to apply a mulch layer of organic material around the plants in the autumn. This will protect the tubers from severe frost and keep the soil moist.

Propagation

Triteleia 'Corrina' can reproduce by forming new tubers. Over time, the tubers can grow close together. To give them room to grow, they can be dug up and divided. This is best done during the plant's dormant period, usually in late summer or early fall.

Origin of the Triteleia

The name "Triteleia" is derived from the Greek word "tris", meaning "three", and "teleia", meaning "perfect" or "finished". It refers to the characteristic number of petals and stamens of plants in the genus Triteleia , which is three.

Triteleia brodiaea 'Corrina' is a cultivar of Triteleia , a genus within the asparagus family (Asparagaceae).

The genus Triteleia is native to the western United States and parts of Mexico. Several species of Triteleia grow naturally in grasslands, mountainous areas and forest edges in these regions. The wild species usually have blue or purple flowers and can vary in height and flowering time.
