3x Ismene 'Zwanenburg' white

Hymenocallis 'Zwanenburg'
White & sweet
Sweet white trumpets. That's how we would describe the Ismene 'Zwanenburg'. Each flower stem can grow as many as 2–5 fragrant flowers. You can plant the 'Zwanenburg' in open ground for a touch of white in your garden. The tubers also thrive in balcony planters. Plant the tubers in the spring. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Space the tubers out when planting. The distance between plants is three times the width of the tuber. Plant the tuber the depth of three times the tuber's height. Plant the tubers in the sun. Water the tuber immediately after planting. Then the soil should be kept slightly damp. The bulbs come in organic packaging. Made of 100% natural materials and 100% recyclable!
A colourful summer!
All our flower bulbs have the A quality mark of the Holland Selection and come with a 100% guarantee that they will grow and bloom. You can be certain that the flower bulbs will grow.

You can plant the Ismene bulbs immediately after receiving them in either the ground or in a pot. Beware of night frosts. When planting the bulbs, make sure that the depth of the hole is twice as large as the height of the bulb. A 5 cm bulb needs to be planted in a 10 cm hole. The spacing of the Hymenocallis is approximately 20 cm. Plant the bulbs in good, well-drained soil, with the point upwards and roots down, then refill the hole with soil. You can plant them individually or in small groups.


Water your Hymenocallis festalis 'Zwanenburg' regularly to prevent the soil around the bulbs from drying out. Removing faded flowers will encourage flowering. For an extra rich flowering of 'Zwanenburg' we recommend regularly adding plant food to the water during the summer.


In addition to its name Ismene is also called the 'Spider Lily' due to the particular quirky shape of its flowers. The exotic flowers are something special similar to the flowers of orchids and daffodils.
