Burnt orange-red flowers with delicate veining. A guaranteed conversation starter. Heirloom, 1665. 20-24cm bulbs. 1 per sq. ft.
These large bulbs are a delight in practically any setting, and their unusual profile draws the eye like a magnet. Give them full sun and a rich, well-drained soil that stays dry in summer. The bulbs have a faint skunky odor, which has the salutary effect of repelling pests, including voles.
