The most enduring trophy of Francis Galton, an explorer and authority on Southwest Africa, may be the summer Hyacinth, which blooms when so many perennials are past their prime. These bulb-forming plants are happiest in rich, well drained soil and need moderate water in the summer.
With strap-like dark green leaves and fragrant spikes of drooping, funnel-shaped white flowers perched on 4 ft. stems, this versatile South African species is undeniably dramatic. Create your own theater by planting it amidst darker, shade tolerant plants, under a high woodland canopy.
