Description

In spring, large umbels of pendulous white flowers with sharply-reflexed petals and a yellow nose, open on thin stems which arise from basal rosettes of thick leathery, lance-shaped leaves. After flowering, the entire plant dies away, as do also its seedlings, to sleep safely underground. R.H.S. 'AGM' Award Winner

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
