Description

A very rare plant from Bulgaria with large, flared, pure white autumn flowers. They are easy to grow in good, deep, moisture-retentive soil, when they bloom after their summer dormancy, denuded of leaves, hence their common name 'Naked Ladies' The bright flowers last incredibly well, even though they appear very fragile, the leaves only appearing in winter to early spring, when they last until midsummer.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
