  1. 3/5/22. I bought a rohdea (sacred lily) from PD some years ago, hoping to brighten up my garden in the sometimes drab early New Years here in Raleigh. It matured beautifully, rewarding me faithfully every year with its perhaps 1 in. red-orange “balls” (whatever they’re called) at the base and its evergreen foliage, too.

      1. 3/6 What a much-appreciated piece of info to find this morn. Thanks lots. At 83, I don’t think I have time to plant a seed. 😉 But. I do think I want to divide the nice big clump I have now. Is this an O.K. time of year?
