  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil (for container-grown bulbs use two parts John Innes No2 compost to one part sharp grit)
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April and May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Small ice-blue flowers, each with a fine white lip, form in conical spikes that rise above the slender foliage in mid-spring. It looks wonderful when allowed to form generous swathes, particularly in a woodland or meadow-style setting, - and it also looks very sweet in patio pots, windowboxes or alpine beds.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm (4in) deep in naturalistic groups in autumn. During summer when the bulbs are dormant lift and divide groups that are becoming congested.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
