    This easy to grow perennial will quickly spread to form a generous colony, which in late spring and early summer, is topped with star-shaped white flowers. A great addition to the front of a border, the bulbs can also be naturalised in turf or grown in pots on the patio.

  • 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. Deadhead after flowering to inhibit unwanted seedlings.
  • Pets: TOXIC if eaten; Humans: Harmful if eaten
