Glumicalyx flanaganii

Pasithea caerulea

Pasithea caerulea
A nice, uncomplicated monocot similar to Anthericum and Arthropodium with branching sprays of simple six-petalled flowers over narrow grassy basal leaves, but in this case the flowers are a good blue. Summer flowering.
This species comes from the northern ‘Mediterranean’ climate zone of Chile and have been hardy and long-lived here in full sun on a well-drained soil.
Sold out, sorry
