The Doryanthes Palmeri grows its big leaves upto 3m, hence the name Giant Spear Lily. The stalk grows upto 5m and droops rather than standing upright due to the weight of the flowers.
The smaller variety, the Doryanthes Excelsa, grows leaves that reach 2-2.5m and its flowering stalk grows straight, upto 6-8 metres and bears a large cluster of bright red flowers, each 10 centimetres across.
Doryanthes palmeri flowers in spring but can take over 13 years to flower. Flowering can be brought on by bushfires, which also promotes the sprouting of root bulbs
