    Big, blousy blooms, which are a rich royal purple with bluish undertones, top stout stems, and look sublime when planted with softer lilacs - or most shades of pink. A relative of the ever-popular (single-flowered) 'Negrita' this new double form is also sure to be a big hit.

  • 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.
