    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 bulbs (ideally on their sides) 20cm 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.
