1 year guarantee

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May
  • Flower colour: yellow with a green flush
  • Other features: excellent cut-flowers
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Bulb size: 11/12

    We think this recently introduced variety will be a big hit for both gardeners and flower arrangers alike. The traditionally shaped, yellow flower is flushed with cream and has a lime green streak, which creates a zesty mix that looks really fresh.

  • Garden care: In September to December plant bulbs 15-20cm deep and 10-15cm apart in fertile, well-drained soil. Alternatively, allow 7-9 bulbs per 30cm sq. After flowering dead-head and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each week for the first month. Once the foliage has died down naturally lift the bulbs and store in a cool greenhouse.

  • Harmful if eaten/may cause skin allergy
