Ledebouria petiolata. A bulbous perennial from South Africa where it is found under trees and on banks by streams. The shiny green leaves have wavy margins and sport black spots, reputedly more obvious in the sun. Spikes of tiny white flowers appear in early summer, hence one if its common names. In the UK it requires a sheltered spot, outdoorsassociating well with Hostas and Ferns, but in cold areas it is best grown in a pot and kept unde cover in the winter. The bulbs multiply rapidly, so they can be tried in various parts of the garden to see what pleases them. Above freezing they will keep some leaves, but in most gardens they will die down and will benefit from a mulch of leaves.
