Leucocoryne purpurea 'Andes' and 'Spotlight'
|Foliage just emerging, early December after planting early November |
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.
