This selection of Ipheion uniflorum comes from the NC garden of the late plantsman Norman Beal, who selected it for its large, pure white flowers. For us, the clumps of waxy grey-green foliage are topped in March and early April (NC) with stalks of white flowers that obscure the foliage. By late May, Ipheion 'Greystone' has gone dormant for the summer. We recommend dividing the clumps every 3-5 years and either sharing with your neighbors or starting a nursery...just kidding. A horticultural circumcision in late spring, a la Lorena Bobbitt, will prevent unwanted offspring.
