    Detailed Description

    This South African native is known for its starry blooms and delicious scent, useful for upgrading a bouquet from simply beautiful to a sensory delight. The white flowers with purple throats spring from narrow stems and open one at a time, extending the blooming period. Slender foliage completes the form, which is slim, allowing these, like glads, to take up little square footage. Especially useful in small or tightly planted gardens.
