    There is a silvery sheen to the outside of the petals, which adds another dimension to the soft puple of the blooms. Inside, golden-orange stamens produce a vibrant shot of contrasting colour. Plant these in clusters at the front of a border, cram them into pots for the patio, or use them to line the edges of a path. They are superb.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in September or October.
