From rounded buds fringed and ruffled petals unfurl to form elegant and intriguing flowers that make spectacular additions to arrangements when cut. Shades of blush and lipstick pink mix easily with green and when teamed with dark plum anthers which only become visible once the flower is fully open it becomes a truly winning combination.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile well-drained soil. Alternatively allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
