It's the first year that I've bothered Motinot. There will be a big planting next year though!
I thought that they were pretty hardy......

I have 3 Christophii to plant, as soon as it stops raining. Hope they look as good as yours when they flower next year.

Also purchased a multi bag from Asda for £7.00 for 45 bulbs of various varieties so should get a good show from these.

The foliage on the Christophii is particularly pleasing Grannyb.

Thanks for the info Meanie. Wouldn't they make wonderful winter plants, covered in frost & snow?
