Lovely to see a white one.....

Is it quite boggy where they are planted? I worry the bulbs will rot off if I planted in my wet ground areas.

Dawnsaunt, my soil hasbeen quite wet, especially where I have been digging, but haven't touched this bit for several years. They do grow naturally in damp meadows, that's not to say bogs, though.

Some of the whites have a wee bit of checkering to the petals.
