Peruvian Lily (Hymenocallis Festalis)


Peruvian Lily (Hymenocallis Festalis) (Hymenocallis festalis)

Very exotic bulb plant. Easy to grow! I like them because of the uncommon and exotic looks of the flowers and their scent. Being scented ads for me extra points to the beauty of flowers. I'm curious about what you think. This bulbs flower just once. At least in this climate (i live in The Netherlands) That is a pity, but their exotic beauty compensates :-)

I had two of these last year - do you think they'll appear again?

Thanks for the kind comments! They are doing very well and the bulbs have grown bigger and produced "side bulbs" (don't know how to say it in English, sorry) that are almost as big as the "parent" bulbs. I'm trying to propagate them and bring them to blooming size too, so i can give a few to my mother :-)
