Description

Pep-up your flower pots with this zesty, exotic Hymenocallis 'Sulphur Queen' – a dazzling lemon-yellow member of the 'Spider Lily' tribe. Noteworthy for its tangy, fresh appeal, the punchy blooms shine in a sherbety hue, with a fabulous flared corona surrounded by slender, wispy reflexed petals. Baring unusual looks and plenty of tropical charm, Hymenocallis makes quite the talking point and deserves all the limelight when in full bloom!

This outlandish yellow variety is one for the warmer parts of the garden, or to show off in a conservatory. Start Hymenocallis 'Sulphur Queen' off indoors in spring and enjoy the anticipation as this remarkable plant slowly unfurls into action. Once the weather warms up in the spring you can move it outside to a suitably warm and sheltered spot.

Gracy knows:
"The fragrant and whimsical Hymenocallis is sometimes called 'Peruvian Daffodil'. However, it’s not a daffodil at all; it’s a cousin to Amaryllis!"
