Hardy. Perennial. Requires a sunny position that is sheltered from the wind, well-drained soil is needed so the bulbs do not sit in water after heavy rain. Ideal for planting in front borders, large pots and containers. Feed with a slow release fertilizer when growing. Once flowers start to fade, dead-head (remove the flower) this will allow the foliage to feed the bulb, if the flowers are left on, the energy will be spent on producing seed and the bulb will reduce in size.
Propagate: By lifting bulbs early summer, once the foliage has completely died back, remove bulblets, and store in a cool dark place until planting time.
