    Rich red flowers with a metallic plum flush, and a lightly ruffled and fringed edge to each petal, top tall stems in early summer. Mix it with deep purples and near blacks for a bold statement, or tone it down with softer lilacs. The flowers are quite long lasting and are good for adding to cut arrangements.

  • 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.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
