Sorry, this item is not available to order online.

The Loddon Lily, also known as Summer Snowflakes, with white, hanging, bell-shaped flowers and often confused with snowdrops despite them flowering later (but not really in summer). Strings of emerald-tipped white bells hang from bare upright stems above glossy green daffodil-like foliage. Particularly happy in damp, even winter-flooded situations, but they will do anywhere where the soil is heavier and more moisture retentive. Daffodil-like bulbs, planted 5” (12cm) deep and 6” (15cm) apart.
