Ismene Littoralis | Hymenocallis Littoralis | Peruvian Daffodils
Hymenocallis Littoralis is an evergreen variety, with spectacular blooms whose dramatically elongated petals are reflexed behind the prominent cup. Sweetly scented, the blooms are gracefully reminiscent of a Salvador Dali painting, and very long lasting. Native to Mexico, this beauty is hard to find, but such a pleasure to grow! Happy in containers or the garden bed, hymenocallis are drought tolerant, but prefer even moisture. Highly attractive to butterflies, but unlikely to be nibbled by deer or rabbits.
