    Fascinating pink-tinted flowers with a creamy centre appear from early to midsummer over the mid-green leaves. Like a giant anemone, the centres of these extraordinary, scented flowers are packed full of tiny, strap-like petals. An excellent specimen plant for the middle of a border in full sun or partial shade.

  • Garden care: Deadhead after flowering. In early spring apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch with well-rotted compost or manure.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
