Description :

From the Hyacinthaceae family (and close to the Scilla genus), the Ledebouria genus comes from South Africa and includes nearly sixteen species of bulbous perennials. As these plants are not very hardy and quite delicate, they must be kept dry during the winter. We only grow them in pots or troughs in the greenhouse or alpine rockery.

Ledebouria cooperi (syn. Scilla cooperi) is a pure plant miniature.

We love its singular foliage streaked with violet purple and dark green, topped at the end of the summer with clusters of pink bells.

Grow in partial shade in sandy and humus-rich soil, which is light and well drained, moist to wet in summer, but dry and well-drained in winter! Soil that remains damp in winter will cause irremediable bulb rot.

The simplest solution is to let the pot dry out as soon as the first frost arrive and to shelter it from harsh frosts. It can withstand short periods of frost if the soil is completely dry. Hardiness: -6°C
