The Giant Spear Lily and particularly the rarer 'palmeri' form is sought after for landscapes for its unique flowerheads, tough upright, clumping habit, and large bright green, sword-shaped leaves. Doryanthes palmeri is a succulent perennial - one of only two species in the genus Doryanthes endemic to NSW. Palmeri is the rarer form that is endangered in its own habitat.
Tall Flower spikes tower above the leaves and display amazing elongated clusters of large red flowers that are often so heavy that it causes the flower stem to bend over. The flowers can reach up to 5m tall.

This species makes a stunning feature plant in any garden and is also good for large containers.

Soil: It is suited to most soil types, including nutrient-deficient soils.
Conditions: Coast, drought, and frost hardy. Best in partial shade but will tolerate full sun.
Size: height 3m x width 2m, flowers up to 5m
