Description

Extremely fragrant ivory-white flowers open in clusters on upright stems, giving the best of their scent in the evening and at night. This rarely-offered, very ornamental, and distant relative of onions, prefers full sun, and will thrive on rich well drained soil, preferring moisture in the summer months and protection from the soaking wet in winter. The bulbs soon clump up into strong masses of grassy foliage, and do best in a well-drained place protected from frost. It will also make a lovely sweetly-perfumed display in a container indoors.

Sowing Advice

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.
