congested snake lily
- Position: full sun
- Soil: well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: May to June
- Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection in colder areas)
- Garden care: Plant corms 10cm deep in autumn in well-drained soil. Keep dry after flowering and apply a generous layer of insulating mulch around the crown in autumn to keep it warm. In colder areas, it may be best to pot it up so it can be over-wintered in a cool greenhouse.
Tightly packed clusters of lilac-blue, tubular flowers, form at the tops of the tall, upright stems in early summer, just as the grass-like foliage is starting to die back. Thriving in a sheltered spot with plenty of sun and freely draining soil, it works well in both a herbaceous border or prairie style setting.
