This amazing form of a South African Ledebouria species that we thought was unpublished Ledebouria stenophylla (scilla relative) was introduced by the late California plantsman, Gary Hammer, and has proven to be reliable even through our wet, cold winters. The bulbs produce 1' long, deciduous, strap-like, grey-green leaves that are heavily spotted with random liver-colored patterns. Each easy-to-grow, 20" wide clump of Ledebouria 'Gary Hammer' looks great in the summer rock garden or as a seasonal container plant in colder climates.
