Description

Make a big impression with our new XXL Hymenocallis × festalis bulbs – jumbo bulbs for an even more impressive display! Also known as Spider Lily and Peruvian Daffodil, this fascinating exotic variety throws out upright stems in summer, topped with large scented white flowers with a central trumpet and wispy, spidery curled tendrils. It’s hard for any plant connoisseur not to lose themselves in admiration for these intricately detailed flowers. If you’re a fan of Hymenocallis, you’ll fall head over heels for these jaw-droppingly large bulbs which will treat you to a triumphant fanfare of flowering stems!

A relative to Amaryllis, Hymenocallis can be grown and used in a similar way – either as a novel potted plant for your home or conservatory, or a nod to the tropics in a patio display during the summer months. These XXL bulbs need warmth to wake up, and once they do they’re ready to shine with extra stems and turbo vigour!

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