Splendidly fragrant cream coloured flowers, tinged with greenish yellow at the centre, are displayed on upright stems emerging from dusky-green fleshy foliage. A sweet almond-like fragrance emanates from the flower at evening time on this distant relative of the onion family, which will make a good addition to a rockery, or can be displayed perfectly in a good terracotta pot, where it will be happy in a conservatory or cold greenhouse. For best results keep the plant moist during spring summer but allow it dry out a little over winter.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
