Description

Some people call this African Hosta but it’s actually an amazing drought tolerant lily groundcover for the shade!

Growing Conditions: Light to heavy shade.  Dry to moist soil.  Thrives under the edge of shrubs.

Flowers: From April, through October, white flowers – just 8 inches tall but impressively showy – stand up tall.

Leaves: In early March, leaves emerge. Black/burgundy spots on emerald background make this a plant to appreciate up close.

How To Plant: Bulbs can be in the ground but sometimes they choose to grow on top of the ground; even through the winter.

Where To Plant: A tough, reliable ground cover, this plant works anywhere.

Our Bulbs:  We ship 2 big clumps  (in 4″ pots)  for $22.  You can plant as a whole or separate them out for a groundcover — they grow quickly.

    This came in perfect condition. It was nicely packaged, labeled and already growing is a pot with soil. Nice sized bulb. Much of my yard has become shaded and I think this will be a welcome conversation piece and change from begonias, ferns and standard ground covers.

      You can divide it up when you plant. Every tiny bulb will grow.
