Leucocoryne purpurea 'Andes' and 'Spotlight'

 
Common name glory of the sun
Family alliaceae
Life cycle perennial bulb (Z10)
Flowers purple (winter)
Size 12-20"
Light sun-part shade

Small bulbs for warm climates, native to Chile, with pretty-patterned flowers in the pink-to-purple color range. They bloom in winter, and go dormant in summer. My mail order source did not make mention of hardiness, which I subsequently learned is limited to zone 10 – so I doubt these will survive in our zone 8b-9 garden. Still, I gave them a spot in the garden and will be watching for them to emerge.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: back fence border
