Galtonia candicans BULB. (Summer Hyacinth) This bulbous species is winter-dormant and produces erect, strap-shaped leaves of up to 1.5 m long in spring. It flowers in summer (December to February) and the sturdy inflorescences (racemes) may grow up to 1.25 m long. The rather large flowers (up to 30 mm long) are pendant, bell-shaped, fragrant and long lasting. They are mostly pure white, but the tube is sometimes pale green on the outside with a very pale green median band running up the back of each lobe.
