This interesting and unusual family of easy-to-grow bulbs produce spectacular Summer displays of sparkler-like white flowers, called Ismene or more commonly White Spider Lilies, or sometimes the Peruvian Daffodil.
Despite their tropical looks, they grow and flower well in the UK in warm, sunny spots – great in pots, or in a well-drained sunny border. They will reach a height of 45cm, and flower in late summer, lasting for several weeks. In full flower on a warm Summer’s day, they are highly fragrant, and really add a different look to your garden.
Easy to grow, they thrive if fed and watered well when growing, and kept in a sunny spot. Allow them to die back down underground each year for bigger and better displays for many years to come. Why not mix White Spider Lily in your pots and planters for something really different?
