    Beautiful, lightly scented, and so easy. They looked just as described. And they held up well to some storms we had with the wind.

    I moved from Zone 8 to Zone 6a [north GA to MA] and really miss my Mexican Tuberose; this season I planted Acidanthera Murielae and this is my new fave local flower. The flowers are stunning and unique and have the sweetest aroma. Each stem has several flowers and the spent blooms turn into a deep pink "crook" and look lovely next to the new blossoms. I grew these in wooden boxes and in raised beds. This one is a winner for me!

    A new favorite!

    Posted by Pamela E. on Sep 15th 2018

    I received a bag of these bulbs with a large order I placed earlier this year. I had no idea what they were but dutifully planted them, and now I'll be ordering them every year! The blooms are large and beautiful atop their three-foot stems, and the fragrance is lovely. Thanks for the introduction to this beautiful flower!

    This season I purchase some Acidanthera bulbs and they bloomed beautifully. The striking white flowers and a long-stem make beautiful grassy arrangements. I highly recommend ordering from Longfield gardens!

    They were a real hit in my garden. I planted them on the pathway to my greenhouse. The scent was amazing. So light and fresh. The flowers were a beautiful color and unusual shape.

    We live in VT and are two miles up a mountain. This is August 15th and they are just now starting to open ....I love these flowers, so elegant, easy to plant 3 together to get a burst of color or a long row . So far the deer are leaving them alone! I gave some to a friend near Lake Champlain and hers have been blooming and looking great for over 2weeks. I will order more for next year and do a succession planting. Thank you!
