Daubenya alba (White Crownlily)(price per 10 seeds) This species is only described in 2002. The name suggests white flowers, but they may also commonly be pale lilac, which fades more white as the flowers mature. They are easily distinguished from other daubenyas by the long tubes formed by the united stamens. Sowing: Seed is sown in autumn, thinly, in deep (min. 10 cm) seed trays, to allow for root development. The soil medium should be well drained, a recommended mix being 2 parts sand: 2 parts compost: 1 part loam or equal parts sand and compost, and the seeds should be planted 3-4 mm deep, covered with clean sand and kept moist and lightly shaded. Locality: Ex Hort.  Harvest: October 2023
