Galtonia candicans (Galtonia candicans)

Second year growing this and it's magnificent this year! The bulbs were huge when I lifted them last autumn, so size does matter!

oh what a shame, they look really lovely.

as the bulbs grow will they increase making more flower stems?

Single stem per bulb, but should get some offset bulbs hopefully...............

Should be hardy over a mild winter, but why risk it? Not a common bulb in the GC's, although it is more common to see them sold in growth.
