Growing Galtonia (Summer Hyacinths)

Often known as the Summer-flowering Hyacinth, this bulb produces long strap- shaped pointed leaves and erect flowering spikes 4 ft. or more high. These spikes bear twenty or more large, drooping, sweet-scented, pure white bells of great beauty. Planted up to 5 in. deep in the early part of the year, they produce a bold effect the same summer.

Left to establish themselves they give a creditable display for many years. Galtonia candicans looks well when planted in groups, particularly when placed towards the back of the border or among shrubs.
