The flowers are charming and delicate. The petals are white with lilac blue tips. They have a sweet scent, and bloom in profusion through spring.

The upright flower stems open amidst grass like leaves.

Endemic to Chile this free flowering, multi-stemmed bulb copes well in dry conditions. In fact, Leucocoryne like it hot! So plant in a sunny position in well drained soil. Water to establish and keep moist during active growth. Keep relatively dry during dormancy.

Fertilise Glory of the Sun monthly with a liquid fertiliser when in growth. Plant in rockeries, pots or the front of garden beds.
