Hymenocallis Festalis

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Unique and highly rewarding to grow, Hymenocallis ‘Festalis’ will bring a fairy-like delicacy to your floral display. With a heavenly fragrance reminiscent of scented narcissi, this ‘Peruvian Daffodil’ offers a long flowering window throughout the summer. Lacy, ivory-white trumpets are encircled by a distinctive halo of fine, elongated tepals curling back on themselves. ‘Festalis’ has earned the much-coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit for its excellent performance and dependability. The tall, sturdy stems also make exceptional cut flowers and forced bulbs to savour indoors, filling the room with their irresistible perfume.


Care Guide

Hymenocallis grow best in a sunny, sheltered location.  

Plant the bulbs with their tips just above the surface of the soil in borders or containers spaced 20cm apart.

Light, well-drained soil is essential for these unusual plants to thrive.  If growing in pots, use an equal mix of loam, good quality multi-purpose compost and sharp sand.

Provide consistent watering, ensuring the soil stays moderately moist.

Bring pots undercover for winter or lift bulbs and store in dry medium such as spent compost once flowering stems have withered in autumn.
