Sorry, this item is not available to order online.

The spelling of acramannii is in some doubt, could it be ackermannii ? Having once seen a greenhouse full of these bulbs in flower many years ago near Taunton and admired them hugely (only later to find that the owner had died and the greenhouse had been demolished shortly afterward) it was many years later that I was offered a stock from the Isle of Man and jumped at the second opportunity. These multiply well under unheated glass for us, but reading about them on the web others suggest that they are hardier than I first suspected. They are summer or early autumn flowering in red and green and in leaf all winter, dormant in early summer.
