  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: gritty, poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: February and March
  • Flower colour: white with grey-blue markings on the outer petals
  • Other features: slender, strap-shaped, mid-green leaves
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 5/7

    Yellow-centred, white flowers with a faint purple flush on the outside of the petals, add dazzling colour in late winter. Scatter the bulbs in large handfuls on top of the lawn and plant them where they fall to form naturalised drifts, or fill gaps at the front edge of a sunny border with generous clumps. If space is at a premium, they also look sweet when crowded into pots or windowboxes.

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

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
