Sandersonia Facts

Sandersonia in Flower
Sandersonia (Sandersonia aurantiaca) is commonly also known as Chinese Lanterns, or Golden Bells. Sandersonia has been exported from New Zealand first as a cutflower and then as a tuber for planting stock. Flower exports started in the early 1980's, mainly to Japan but more recently to other markets. New Zealand exports tubers mainly to Japan but also to other destinations such as Europe.

From sunny New Zealand.

Sandersonia Tubers
The tubers are grown in the north of New Zealand which ideally suited to Sandersonia production. New Zealand's northern climate is warm and sub tropical.

Export Ready

Our professional growers have vast experience in producing high quality sandersonis tubers. This combined with the beneficial climate results in a high quality tuber ready to produce good quality flowers.
