Leucocoryne have a striking appearance and a beautiful fragrance that, combined with their long-lasting flowers, make them perfect to use as cutflowers. The saucer-shaped flowers are about 1" / 2.5 cm across. Clusters of 6-9 of them will form on each willowy stem and will last for several weeks. Their foliage is long, narrow and grass-like. Ideal bulbs for rockgardens, pots & containers or in small seasonal beds.
