These bulbs never get very big and in the ground their anchoring stolons tend to ‘move’ them in the soil so they sometimes land up some way from where they were planted. The hooded purple green flowers almost demand to be held up so as to look at the feathered purple and gold markings within. Perfectly hardy here and over much of the country elsewhere I would expect, increasing quite rapidly in soils that are not too dry.

Planting Instructions

Plant in a sunny situation in moisture retentive soils, about 4-5" (10-12cm) deep and 3" (8cm) apart. In cold gardens may need mulching in winter. 36" (90cm)  tall
