Galtonia 'Summer Hyacinth'

Galtonia candicans

Hardy Perennial

As other summer performers are going past their best, our Galtonia bulbs will burst forth to offer an elegant floral display from July through to September. Tall flower spikes produce nodding, bell-shaped flowers of white and green that go on to produce a light but heady scent. Erect strap-like leaves offer an architectural element to planting displays. Make sure to set your Galtonia plants close to seating areas where they can be enjoyed at their best. For the best display plant this South African native in a sunny spot to encourage strong flowering. Height 100cm (39"). Spread: 50cm (20").

  1. Best in a pot

    By Philippa Greensmith 21-08-2016

    I bought these bulbs a few years ago. The ones planted in the soil were excellent for one season, and then they disappeared, but the remainder, planted in a large pot, have survived all sorts of neglect to flower profusely in late summer every year. I can recommend them.
