Big deliciously scented, white flowers form in open clusters at the top of the upright stems in midsummer. These wonderfully showy flowers look brilliant in the border but also work well in large deep pots and containers. Make sure they are planted near a path, seating area or entranceway so you can enjoy their heady perfume each time you pass. The flowers will also last well after being cut so make sure you plant some extras for the vase.

  • Garden care: Between August and March plant the bulbs 15-20cm (6-8in) deep in well-drained soil that has been enriched with well-rotted organic matter or leaf mould. Stake with ring stakes or bamboo canes in spring before the flowers appear and deadhead the faded blooms. After flowering has finished and the plant has died down, you can cut the stems back to ground level at the end of autumn.
