At last the real, true to name plant is introduced to cultivation.
For many years Greek plants (now known to be incorrectly named), have done the rounds as Leucojum valentinum or latterly as Acis valentina. In fact the Greek plant is A. ionica and I am not aware that anyone has ever offered the true Spanish A. valentina before our present offering (first offered in 2012). You may see the name around, I am certain that it will not be the true plant that you have, or get sent.
True, Spanish, A. valentina has pure white flowers from late August onwards into September. Slender leaves follow the first flowers but can be present with later ones, though this is not constant. A well drained, loam-based soil in full sun or pot torture is all that is needed.
A full discussion of A. valentina and A. ionica is available in our members area.
