Additional Information

Can cope with full sun but the flowers last longer in part shade. The bulb can rot if it gets too wet, so plant the bulbs on their side, as they have a hole in the middle which can get waterlogged. A little bit of sharp sand mixed in with the soil helps considerabley. As long as the drainage is right, these bulbs are very easy to grow. Hardy bulbous perennial.

"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"
