Paradisea liliastrum

This hails from the alpine meadows of southern Europe mostly in the French and Italian alps where it can be found in the company of other, equally lovely flowers all making their display in June and July.

The stems are very slender and can reach up to 100cm tall, although 75cm is normal here. The flower spikes bear a succession of pure white trumpet blooms(sometimes with a reddish petal stripe on the outside) for a long period in summer.

A hardy alpine-meadow plant happy oput in a sunny garden spot.
