Galtonia candicans (The Summer Hyacinth) - potted

Plant type: Bulb

This wonderful South African bulb grows to form a distinctive 3ft high pyramid of waxy pure white pendant flowers in mid to late summer. The individual blooms tubular and are slightly scented. Galtonia grow best in a sheltered well-drained border but appreciate plenty of moisture when in growth over the summer. Grow them through perennials such as Agapanthus or hardy geraniums to give a new lease of life to the border once other perennials have passed their best. Mulch in winter.
