IPHEION 'ALBERTO CASTILLO'
This new, larger, white form has six petalled, star-shaped, sweetly fragrant white flowers, each petal with a faint green central stripe, flowering in late winter and spring, all on thin stems over grass-like foliage.
Sow seeds at any time covering them very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
