Description

Along with camassias, these are one of the longest living bulbs, still coming up in the same place in my garden from planting 25 years ago. They grow happily in grass or border (where they will gradually naturalise), chic and classy mixed with white tulips, or growing and arranged simply on their own.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Care Tips

Once the leaves have turned yellow stop watering and remove once withered. If planting in a colder region plant your bulbs deeper and mulch them over winter.
