One of the most fragrant flowering plants grown in the garden. Flower color varies from pure white, to yellow, pink, blue, lavender, purple and red. They do not repeat bloom satisfactorily in zones 8-11. In order to get the flower stalk to emerge and elongate properly in these zones, the bulbs should be refrigerated at about 40 degrees F. for six weeks prior to planting in outdoor beds in late fall or early winter.
