    Often subtley marbled, the grey-green foliage encases the upright stem which appears in early spring, topped with a red and yellow flower, which opens during the day to reveal a patterned eye. Compact and hardy, it is ideal for naturalising in rockeries or borders, and it will also make a showy addition to the patio.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 8-10cm (4-5in) deep in fertile, well-drained soil. 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, or leave in the soil and allow to naturalise.
  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
