Additional Information

Attractive to bees and butterflies. Rabbit and deer resistant. These add impact to an early summer border or can be dried for winter decoration. Leave the foliage to die back naturally so this enables them to build up energy for the next year. No need to lift your bulbs during the winter, they are fully hardy. Instead, mulch the base of your plant with mushroom compost.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
