    An old variety (it was first introduced in 1910), but still very popular as its sweetly scented clusters of vibrant pinkish red, bell-shaped flowers take some beating. It's a superb choice for pots or front of border positions where you want something that stands out. The flowers are incredibly bright and can be used for cutting too.

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