    This superb, late summer flowering, bulbous perennial puts on a wonderfully prolific display at a time when many others plants are well past their best. Each waxy, white flower dangles from the upright stem like a dainty, luminous bell, emitting a light but heady scent. A native of South Africa, they will be happiest in a sunny spot with moist but well-drained soil.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 10-15cm deep (at 30-60cm intervals) in late winter or early spring. In areas with severe winters, lift and pot up plants in late autumn and move to a frost-free place to overwinter or protect plants in situ with a deep, dry mulch. Keep relatively dry while dormant.
  • Humans/Pets: Ornamental bulbs - not to be eaten
