Galtonia Candicans (Summer Hyacinth)


Galtonia Candicans (Summer Hyacinth)

Scented bell-shaped flowers


This superb, late summer flowering, bulbous perennial puts on a wonderfully prolific display at a time when many others plants are well past their best. Each waxy, white flower dangles from the upright stem like a dainty, luminous bell, emitting a light but heady scent. A native of South Africa, they will be happiest in a sunny spot with moist but well-drained soil.
