    Porcelain-blue, star-shaped flowers crowd the upright flowerspike in spring, filling the surrounding air with their sweet perfume. A wonderful addition to pots and window-boxes, it also looks lovely planted in clumps or drifts throughout the border. Plant it near a pathway or entrance, so the scent can best be appreciated.

  • Garden care: Using gloves plant bulbs 10-15cm (4-6in) deep and 15cm (6in) apart in early or mid-autumn.
