Ipheion is a true bulb and the original three species are from Argentina, Uruguay, southern Brazil and Chile. They are very economical, easy and rewarding and the flowers are sweetly scented whilst the rest of the plant smells like garlic. We recommend accompanying the flower with taller plants in a layered manner to create a beautiful effect. When the plant reaches maturity it is 20cm tall.

You can lift the bulbs in summer if you would like to spread the plant around your garden. They do multiply freely from their offsets and seeds so it is possible to leave the bulbs in the soil and enjoy the flowers every season.
