HUNDREDS OF STAR-LIKE FLOW­ERS HELD ABOVE GRASSY FO­LIAGE

Gardeners' World - - We September -

It’s no won­der these beau­ties se­cured a gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In spring, thou­sands of daz­zling stars ap­pear grad­u­ally from the bot­tom to the top of each stem, il­lu­mi­nat­ing your gar­den for up to eight weeks. The lush green, grassy fo­liage is an added bonus. Orig­i­nat­ing from North Amer­ica, ap­par­ently In­dian folk used to roast the bulb as it tasted sim­i­lar to a sweet potato but we pre­fer to leave them in our gar­dens to nat­u­ralise! These easy to grow bul­bous peren­ni­als are ex­tremely hardy and thrive in most soils, even poor or heavy con­di­tions – sunny and moist to drier with some shade. Per­fect for plant­ing in borders, wood­land, damp wild­flower mead­ows and along­side ponds or streams. If short of space they will grow in containers too. Your or­der will be con­firmed to­gether with a copy of our lat­est cat­a­logue and your bulbs will be de­liv­ered with our no quib­ble guar­an­tee from Septem­ber on­wards.
