    A rarely seen version of the ever-popular Guernsey lily, the flowers of this summer-dormant bulb start to appear in autumn - and are closely followed by the strappy foliage. The flowers themselves appear in open clusters that top stout upright stems, and their slender petals form flaring trumpets, each with a prominent boss of stamens. Excellent for adding a splash of late colour to pots or borders.

  • Garden care: Plant shallowly outside with their neck just above the surface of the soil at 10-15cm intervals from April onwards. They are happiest in a dense clump, so once planted avoid disturbing the roots and only lift and divide them when they have outgrown their allotted space.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
