The white rim helps define the colouring of the deep maroon petals, and together they create a show-stopping effect - particularly when seen against the backdrop of the blue-flushed foliage. Plant en-masse so you have enough for the border as well as the vase.
- Garden care: From September to December, plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head 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.
