A fully double form of Galtonia candicans,
Galtonia ‘Moonbeam’ is twice the height, has rose bud like flowers and produces many more blooms.
The racemes of Galtonia ‘Moonbeam’ carry 10-40 flowers on each stem which, in ideal conditions, can reach 2m! The flowers are creamy white with a light fragrance. The blooms last well in a vase where their height is handy in arrangements.
The grey-green, lance shaped, upright foliage surrounds the bloom, but doesn’t reach their heady heights.
This excellent cultivar is dry tolerant once established. A fertile, well drained soil, with a moderate water supply during the growing season is required. Plant in a sunny position for a good display year after year. In areas north of Sydney they do best with a little shade. Bulbs can be left in the ground to naturalise.
Discovered in 1982 by a garden enthusiast in a small town of New Zealand, this extraordinary bulb has been bred to increase in numbers and has become available in Australia exclusively through Tesselaar.
