    Supremely elegant, these rich purple blooms sit on top of sturdy, upright stems, which hold up well in wind and rain. The flowers are long-lasting and make excellent additions to cut arrangements. Team it up with ligher shades of purple and rich plums, as well as near blacks for a winning combination.

  • 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.
