Leucojum Aestivum have strap-shaped dark green grassy foliage. Each umbel bears up to 8 nodding bell-shaped crisp white flowers marked with a green tip. Growing to 50-60cm they are an impressive sight planted in drifts where left undisturbed they will naturalise well and can be used as cut flowers. Their delicate scent is attractive to bees. 7/8cm bulbs supplied.
