The unusual white flowered form of this Mediterranean bulb (not from Peru!). Clumps of broad light green leaves and large heads of white, star shaped flowers to 30cm. Drained soil in full sun for the best flowers.
Typical of plants from the area, this appreciates the sort of summer baking that you imagine a Mediterranean climate will give. The best plants I've seen in Norfolk were growing at the base of a south facing wall.
Late frosts can damage the foliage but rarely cause any long term harm.
Spain, Portugal, Italy and North Africa amongst other areas.
