Yellow-throated, white flowers with soft, silvery, lilac-blue outer petals in February and March, framed by slender, strap-shaped, grey-green leaves. Versatile and easy to grow, these spring-flowering bulbs are suitable for naturalising in grass or planting in sunny areas of a rock garden or shrub border. They need well-drained soils and prefer dry summers.
- Garden care: Plant bulbs in tight clusters to form naturalistic drifts 10cm deep where they can be left undisturbed for several years. Keep a lookout for damage by mice or squirrels. This can sometimes be avoided by laying a piece of chicken wire over the bulbs before you cover them with soil. If you are growing these in grass, avoid mowing it until the leaves have completely died back.
