  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: September to November
  • Hardiness: borderline hardy (may need winter protection)

    The spidery white flowers form in clusters around the top of the tall stems in autumn. Tolerant of low temperatures provided they are not too wet, they originate from South Africa so will be happiest in a freely draining soil where they can bake in full sun. They flower best when they are congested, so will work well in pots and containers.

  • Garden care:Plant shallowly outside with their neck just above the surface of the soil at 10 - 15cm intervals from April onwards. They are happiest in a dense clump, so once planted avoid disturbing the roots and only lift and divide them when they have outgrown their alloted space. In colder regions, plant in pots and overwinter a cool greenhouse.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
