Gardeners who enjoy the delicacy and rarity of beautiful alpine plants will love Glory of The Sun (Leucocoryne). This treasure from the stony hillsides of the Chile Andes blooms in umbels of six-petaled blue flowers with red-violet centers. Low growing foliage appears in spring and gives way to flowers on tall delicate stems that open to the sun’s rays in mid to late summer. Fragrant blooms attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Perfect for hot and sunny rock gardens and containers gardens.
