    Deep burgundy red, velvety blooms that seem to glow like burning coals in the morning sun, sit on top of tall, sturdy stems late in the season. Their rich colouring blends well with deep purples and near blacks or liven them up with oranges and reds.

  • 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 deadhead 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.
