Anthericum liliago

Anthericum liliago

Common name St Bernard's lily
Family liliaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z4-9)
Flowers white (late spring)
Size 18-24"
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained garden soil, preferably moist

Native to southern Europe. A mature plant produces many stems of white, widely flared starry flowers from a substantial grassy clump. Ours is only in its second year, and offered us a more anemic single floppy stem – but at least there's flowers. Better next year, I'm sure.
