St. Bernard's Lily Overview
Anthericum liliago produces tufts of grass-like grey-green leaves. In the late spring or early summer, tall spikes of white flowers on white stems are produced which seem to 'float' in the right light. Also known as St. Bernard's Lil, Branched Spiderwort and Savoy Spiderwort, these plants prefer full sun and well-drained soil over winter to prevent the fleshy roots from rotting away.
