Pure gold classical flutes with attractive feathery lemon yellow to creamy-white margins top sturdy stems in April. You can plant this one with similar shades of yellow and cream but to show it off to best effect, contrasting shades of blue or purple will really bring out the lemon meringue colouring.

  • 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.
