    Soft pink petals, which become even paler at their outer edges, are punctuated with bold streaks of green through their centre. These flowers perch on upright stems above the attractively variegated foliage in late spring. The combination of handsome good looks as well as robust growth has won it a coveted Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society.

  • 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.
