This brooding colour contrasts well with silvery foliage plants, and their upright habit means they also associate well with grasses.Garden care: Plant 12cm (5in) deep from September to November in fertile, well-drained soil, and keep an eye out for slug and snail damage when the new foliage is emerging in spring.Please note that as we grow these bulbs especially for you, we need to take full payment when you place your order so as to reserve stock for you.
