The fabulously fragrant Peruvian Daffodil is an exotic-looking, white wildflower native to South America. The petals of these trumpet-shaped blooms command many furls and unfurls, pairing well with the strappy, arching leaves. Easy to grow and simply striking in both the garden and the vase. Hardy in Zones 7-10, the Peruvian Daffodil is considered an annual in all other zones, but can be lifted and stored for planting the following year.(Hymenocallis festalis)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
This is one of the great wildflower blooms of the South American tropics. Even the Florida Everglades has a species of white Spider Lily.' They're famous for their very strong sweet fragrance, they grow quickly, and they make a wonderful show in the garden or in a vase.

From a gardener who's grown it: 'I decided to grow the Peruvian Daffodil for myself. I'm glad I did! Of course I was amazed by the beauty and fragrance of this flower, but I was also amazed by how fast it grew once I planted the bulb. In a few days, the new growth broke the surface of the soil. In less than two weeks, the bulb produced plenty of healthy leaves and started to send up it's flower stalk.

In less than a month, the first flower bud was in full bloom! The flower stalk produced four flowers that year. As the weather cooled, I stopped watering in preparation for the dormant period. When I pulled the bulbs out of the soil, I was surprised by how many new bulbs that were produced. And the original bulb was larger than when first planted. The largest of the newly formed bulbs was as big as the original when first planted. It produced a flowering stalk the following year.' ...from a subscriber at, gardening in Cleveland, OH.
