Description

This European native is a perennial bulb that has conical racemes of tightly packed, violet blue, white edged flowers that rise to a height of 8”. Each bulb has 1 to 3 scapes. These scapes rise up from clumps of narrow, green leaves in April. These bulbs can be grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade, planted about 3” deep and 3” apart in fall. The ground should be kept moist during the spring growing season; watering can be reduced after foliage begins to die back when the plants go dormant in summer. In autumn, new leaves will appear. Naturalizes by both bulb offsets and may self-seed.
