What a beauty this is! Known as the Star of Bethlehem or the Arabian Starflower, this delicate looking flower is a robust, hardy perennial and when given the right growing conditions will reward you every late spring to mid-summer with its graceful and unusually shaped flower heads. The sweetly scented clusters of tiny white starry flowers have striking black, almost bead/berry-like centres. Ideal planted in groups near the back door or along a pathway or in an alpine/rock garden. These half-hardy plants also look stunning as specimen plants grown in pots to enjoy the scent at close quarters. Height 45cms. Flowers May - July.
Product Code: PORN005
Plant the bulbs pointy side up in a sheltered site in full sun that has good drainage. Bulbs can be planted closer together when growing in pots or containers. Plant them at three times their depth and approximately 5cms apart. Plant the bulbs in 5’s, 7’s or 9’s, to give a great display – they look more outstanding in a group rather than dotted about and the scent will be more powerful.
