Summer Snowflakes.  A robust bulb from South Africa which has it origins with a seed collection by Scottish plantsman Will Soos who collected this in South Africa and kindly shared seeds with us during our visit to his garden.  This makes strong clumps of grassy summer foliage with tall 2'-4' stems of white and green flowers.  Mulch if it gets all arctic in winter as the bulb neck tend to become exposed with age and with such mulch, this can cope with zone 8a.
