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.
