Asphodelus albus is summer dormant, but can take its time going down,
especially if the soil is damp. The round, yellowish-brown fruits can be
quite attractive at this time, but tend to weigh the stems down. We grow it
here as it is a survivor from H.J. Elwes's garden, but I wouldn't bother on
its own merits. The inflorescence is attractive as it first opens but
thereafter quickly looks very tatty.
