A beautiful bulbous plant that can often be seen growing in pure sand on the dunes of the Mediterranean coasts. 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 if in very sandy soil (for example 70% sand, 20 % peat, 10% perlite) and 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.
