Sweetly scented flowers perfect for a sunny spot in your garden. The soft purple blooms have a flash of maroon purple at the base of the petals. The centre is a contrasting green, each bloom is around 2.5cm wide. The flowers open in loose umbels on narrow stems, with 2-7 blooms per umbel.

The foliage of Glory of the Sun 'Purpurea' is mid green narrow and grass like and they smell of garlic when crushed. It has been awarded the esteemed RHS Award of Garden Merit.

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.
