  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April and May

    Clusters of striking, reddish-orange, bell-like flowers on sturdy stems in April and May and whorls of glossy, green leaves. These imposing and long-lasting bulbs look fabulous emerging from a sunny, well-drained herbaceous border. After flowering remove the ripening leaves - left in place the seedpods provide sculptural interest for several months.

  • Garden care: Plant 20cm (8in) deep from September to November in fertile, well-drained soil, taking care not to damage the fragile bulbs. To minimise unnecessary disturbance use a marker indicating where the bulbs have been planted
  • CAUTION toxic if eaten/skin & eye irritant
