Beautiful in bloom, Aphyllanthes monspeliensis (Lily Pink) is a charming perennial forming tufts of narrow blue-green stems with linear leaves reduced to membranous sheaths. Blooming in mid spring to midsummer, delicate sky blue flowers, 1 in. across (2.5 cm), are borne atop the wiry stems. They open from papery bracts and are probably pollinated by bees. They give way to beaked, three-seeded capsules that split open when they are ripe. Native to the western Mediterranean region, Lily Pink occurs naturally in rocky areas where water is infrequent, sunlight is abundant, and summers are hot. It is a good choice for dry sunny rock gardens and sun-baked hillsides.

  • Grows up to 12-20 in. tall and wide (30-50 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun in dry, poor stony, neutral to alkaline, well-drained soils.
  • Great for border fronts, rock gardens, cottage gardens, Mediterranean gardens.
  • No serious insect or disease issues.
  • Propagate by seed.
  • Native to the western Mediterranean region.
