Hymenocallis Festalis 'Ismene' (Pack 3 Bulbs) is scented
Hymenocallis Festalis 'Ismene' (Pack 3 Bulbs)
Hymenocallis Festalis 'Ismene' (Pack 3 Bulbs) Hymenocallis Festalis White The Spider Lily
Hymenocallis Festalis also known as the peruvian daffodil or the spider lily.
 
Hymocallis Festalis need a nice well-drained, sunny position but as they are tender perennials they will need protection over the winter.
 
These perrenials are ideal for planting in pots so they can be easily lifted and stored over winter to protect from the colder climate. The flowers are ivory white and very unique, they have between 3-5 highly scented flowers on each leafless stem that will grow around 60cm tall. The folliage comes from the base and will grow about 30cm high.
 
Hymocallis Festalis can be grown in containers or planted straight into your garden. It really is a fantastic addition to any garden.

How to Plant your Hymenocallis

  • Plant into pots between March and May using multipurpose compost and grow them on indoors or in a warm greenhouse.
  • Once the risk of frost has passed, they can be transplanted outside from May onwards.
  • Alternatively, you can plant them straight outside in May.

Planting in Pots

  • Plant your Hymenocallis Festalis bulbs with their neck and shoulders above soil level.
  • Space the bulbs around 10-15cm apart.
  • Plant 1 bulb to 6" pot or 3 bulbs to a 12" pot.
  • Plant in a good-quality multipurpose compost. 
  • Place in a sunny position. 
  • Water regularly. Allow the soil to become dry between watering.

Planting in Outside

  • Find a sheltered position in full sun with free-draining soil, preferably sandy soil.
  • Plant your Hymenocallis Festalis bulbs with their neck and shoulders above soil level.
  • Space the bulbs around 10-15cm apart.
  • Water regularly. Allow the soil to become dry between watering.
