Plant Details

A delightful plant from Argentina which is also found in Chile and Peru. Narrow leaves and copper coloured buds which open to strong orange-yellow flowers.

Flowers in summer, usually after a dry spell ends and the soil becomes moist again.

Drought tolerant when established. We have found it to be hardy provided the soil doesn't freeze solid. Could be planted in a container if you are worried.

Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Height: 10cm

Common name(s): Barbados snowdrop; Crocus lily; Tube-spathed zephyr flower

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
