Pancratium illyricum (Illyrian Sea Daffodil) Exclusive

30 (40)cm, Illyrian Sea Daffodil is a very rarely cultivated Pancratium species from mountaineous regions on Sardinia (Italy) and Corsica (France). It makes broad bluish-green leaves and large fragrant white flowers with broad petals, which sometimes show a light green middle stripe. Stalks are born shortly above emerging leaves in spring. Pancratium illyricum is the only Pancratium species which is sufficiently winterhardy in Central Europe, as it is winter dormant and summer green. For any well drained, rocky soil in full sun. Plant bulbs quite deep (three times their size) in a sheltered spot, which is protected from winter wetness and freezing through. Bulbs are best grown for one year in pots under frostfree conditions at some 5°C in winter, before they are planted to their final spot in the garden in spring. Bulbs derive from high altitude populations at some 1,150m on Sardinia and are especially cold resistant. Plants rarely, if ever, make daughter bulbs, thus propagation is very slow and mostly by seeds. USDA Climate Zone 7. IV-V.
