Leucocoryne will add a South American touch to your garden with its unusual colour combinations and beautiful fragrance produced by clusters of sweet flowers on the end 40 to 50cm (16 to 20in) stems. The ideal place for Leucocorynes is around the feet of shrubs, or planted in coarse well-drained soil in rock gardens or patio containers. Leucocoryne flowers in April and May, opening long recurved petals with star-shaped centres which are given extra decoration by three long staminoids. Leucocoryne's flowers are almost lily-like or somewhat like daffodils, depending on which of the 12 species you choose. Colour combinations vary from subtle white and pale green or yellow, to the more striking mix of lilac and red or violet and white.
