This is a genus of lovely herbaceous perennials, often known as the 'Bridal Wreath', with tall, narrow spikes packed with four-petalled flowers above evergreen rosettes of crinkly foliage. There are white- and pink-flowered forms, but all tend to have a darker stripe along the centre line of each petal. They originally came from Chile.
Francoa ramosa has graceful sprays of white flowers, flushed pink, above clumps of evergreen leaves. It needs protection from winter wet.
