Position:sun or partial shade Soil: humus-rich, moist but well drained soil
Rate of growth: average Flowering period: January and February Flower colour: white Other features: all parts of the plant may cause a mild stomach upset if ingested; contact with the bulbs may cause skin irritation
Hardiness: fully hardy
Bulb Size: 4/5It's hard not to love these wonderful bulbs for adding colour to the garden when little else is awake. The nodding white flowers have a small green marking on the inside of each tepal, are honey scented, and appear in late winter. They look particularly good planted in large drifts in grass where they will naturalise quite happily. Alternatively plant them up in clumps in the front of mixed borders, or into pots so they can be admired close up.Garden care: Plant bulbs 5cm deep in dense clusters to form naturalistic drifts. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died right back. Divide large colonies after flowering while the leaves are still green for use in other moist, well-drained areas.
