Description

The late spring candelabra bulb, which flowers all through May and June — and like its cousin, the allium, has splendid architectural seedheads and is a magnet for bees and butterflies. This grows happily in shade. Will self-sow.

Care Tips

Self seeds freely and can be a little invasive so take care where you plant them.
