  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, freely draining soil that does not dry out
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: March and April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 1

    Each stem of this plant will carry up to 10 nodding, sulphur-yellow flowers with a brown central ring and deep yellow anthers. The foliage can be equally showy as it has either bronze-mottled, or fainter white marbling on the deep green, glossy leaves. In early spring this combination makes a very colourful display in woodlands and meadows. This is a vigorous plant which will form clumps and spread.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 15 - 20cm deep and 15cm apart in naturalistic drifts where they can be left undisturbed for several years. Try to avoid planting under shrubs or trees that will soak up all the soil moisture in the summer.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
