Weeping Anthericum. If one does not recognize this genus, it is the same one from which we get the popular hanging-basket subject often referred to around these parts as "Airplane Plant." This species has much narrower and more upright leaves with 18-24" wispy flower stalks topped with small white flowers which is in the lily family. I first saw this species growing in the walled garden of Riverbanks Botanical Garden in Columbia, SC. It gives a unique texture and could be used very liberally in the perennial border or even among "woodies. When one needs a "grass-effect" which really flowers over a long period of time, this is a super subject. It works well in a combination pot as well. It flowers for us throughout the growing season, but in even milder ranges it will flower year around. The last picture is compliments of Random Harvest Nursery in South Africa where this plant is a native. All of our plants are from a single clone, so there is no problem with seed set and plants becoming weedy, which happens in its native haunts.
