Comments: This is an excellent bulb for summer color. It can be planted in the same beds with spring flowering bulbs and will extend the seasonal color well into the summer. They make good bedding plants and are long lasting cut flowers on tall, sturdy stems. Large bulbs will produce a dozen or so flowers. Plant bulbs in a porous soil and in full sunlight for most of the day.
