    Despite the name, the flower colour is more purple than blue, but they also have a subtle silvery lustre,. The larger than average size of the fully double blooms will also pack a pretty impressive punch when woven through the border or used in pots. A good mixer, it goes well with most pinks and purples as well as deep plum.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.
