Description:

Beautiful bulbous plant from the mediterranean coasts where it can often be seen growing in pure sand on the dunes and flowering mid to late Summer, in the hottest conditions. Very large, exotic looking, pure white flowers emerge from the bulb when the glaucous, very ornamental leaves die back. The leaves are present from March to July. The flowers have a pleasing and very subtle scent. Easy to grow in very sandy soil (for example 70% sand, 20 % peat, 10% perlite) if you can provide hot conditions in a greenhouse or on a sunny patio. It is hardy to -5 Celsius. The seedlings should start to flower in 3 years time so some patience needed but the bluish leaves will provide joy until the first flowers.
