A tough and easy spring-flowering bulbous plant which naturalises well. Very pretty soft silvery grey-green flowers in May, bluebell-like in stature. Sweetly scented. Originally from Bulgaria and SW Turkey.
Good for cutting and last very well. Perfect for planting in mixed borders, pots and containers or even in grass as the foliage can be mown when it dies back after flowering.
Prefers a sunny or lightly shaded position in well-drained to average soil.
Awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
Common name(s): Drooping star of Bethlehem; Nodding star of Bethlehem
All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
