More Information About Nothoscordum
There is one species, Nothoscordum gracile, that should be avoided due to its rampant spreading, but other species are attractive and well-behaved garden plants.
Taxonomists have lumped some yellow-flowered species in with Ipheion and Tristagma so you may see the same plants under several names on the internet. We are offering yellow-flowered nothoscordum for sale because they are both charming and tough.
Northoscordum in the Garden
Nothoscordum prefer full sun, clay or well amended soils, and milder winters. They bloom primarily in spring, but Nothoscordum montevidense will provide an autumn encore if you applaud loud enough. Our offerings are very small plants that look best in a rock garden, a small container or at the very front of a border. Keep in mind that our selection of N. sellowianum is sterile so propagation can be quite slow.
