Description

This extremely attractive plant bears branched panicles up to a foot long that carry up to 50 creamy-white, star-like, stalked flowers. Flower stalks arising from a compact clump of lily-like leaves are accompanied by a short lance shaped papery bract at the base that is often tinged with purple or pink. All parts of this plant are poisonous so do not eat!

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, 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 tray 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.
