    A single early hybrid with deep yellow cups that are heavily streaked with blood-red flames. The flowers are quite small but nevertheless they pack a real punch when planted in bold drifts or where their bright flowers can add early colour to a hot border.

  • 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.
