Product Description

Also known as the glory-of-the-sun, Leucocoryne 'Andes' is a delicate beauty that will delight you with its cheery, primrose-like, bi-coloured blooms.

The fragrant, funnel-shaped, rosy purple flowers have a distinctive, light purple-red centre and are produced on tall, graceful stems in June-July, emerging above narrow, grassy leaves.

Fully deserving of its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that Leucocoryne is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience.

You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Leucocoryne can be left to naturalise in soil that is warm and dry in summer and will benefit from a winter mulch as the bulbs are tender - or you can grow them in a pot of well-draining compost and move them into a frost-free area over winter.

The brilliant flowers are around 2.5cm (1in) across and stand out both at the front of a sunny border or as cut flowers in a vase.

Supplied as a pack of 25 bulbs, glory-of-the-sun will bloom in June-July and reach approx. H50cm x W10cm.

Plant Information

Top Tips

As the flowers develop the foliage will begin to fade, then when blooming has finished, reduce watering and allow the soil to dry out to encourage dormancy.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Leucocoryne:

  • Plant bulbs 10cm deep in moderately fertile, very well-drained soil in a sunny position and provide a winter mulch as protection as glory-of-the-sun is a tender bulb.
  • Ideal for growing in a cool greenhouse.
  • If growing in a pot, use a soil-based potting compost with added sharp sand for best results.

 

Aftercare Advice for glory-of-the-sun:

  • Water regularly when in growth and apply a general-purpose liquid feed monthly when in leaf.
  • Reduce water after flowering and keep almost dry when dormant in summer.
  • Repot every two years, in autumn
