A hardy-ish spider plant! Clumps of elegant, grassy leaves and masses of starry white flowers held on arching stems in summer to 40cm. Drained, good soil in shade is best.

Chlorophytum saundersiae has proved to be one of those plants where the more you cosset it, the less happy it is!  We've found it happiest growing in a pot in a shade tunnel where it has dried out in summer and been soaked and frozen solid in winter.  Plants kept in a cosy heated polytunnel overwinter have objected!  So, I'd say if you can grow Begonia grandis outside, try this Chlorophytum in the same place.
