Could you tell me how to care for a Peruvian Daffodil (Ismene Fistallis) once the flowers turn brown.

Once your Hymenocallis Festalis has finished flowering, cut the flower heads off and allow the stem and foliage to die back naturally to feed the bulbs for the following year. If you have planted your Hymencaollis Festalis in the garden, you may need to lift and store your bulbs over the colder months to protect from frost. Lift your bulbs and store in a cool, dry place like a greenhouse or garage. Place bulbs in a paper bag or cardboard box for protection. The bulbs should be cleaned of any soil (you can brush off any excess soil).
If you have planted your Hymenocallis in pots, simply bring under cover until the risk of frost has passed.
