These are un-flowered seedlings of the rare white form of the Dragon lily, yes; there are other colours than the more familiar reddish-maroon. Collected as seed from one of the few known sites on Crete. Most of the seed plants were white, with either yellow or black spadices, some were marbled, or very occasionally, the common dark form, so this batch is a bit of a lucky dip. Nevertheless the chances of obtaining one of the Holy Grails of the bulb world are excellent. 3 year old tubers. Image of marbled form supplied by Stephen Ryan.
