Chlorophytum krookianum



17th September 2005

This vigorous species is remarkable for being hardy, at least in the southern part of the UK. The flower stems arise in summer and carry the expected small white stars on wiry upright stems. Frosts will destroy the leaves, but resting buds in the crown withstand frost and grow vigorously in the spring.

I have grown plenty of seedlings and they are all very much alike, so when I nsaw this especially broad leaved plant in a nursery I though it was worth trying. I think that it comes from the same seed stock as my other plant io the variability is a surprise.
