Position: full sun
Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average Flowering period: July to August
Hardiness: fully hardy
Bulb Size: 4+Small, egg-shaped, claret-coloured flowerheads appear like drumsticks on tall, slender stems above strap-like, mid-green leaves in mid to late summer. Planted en masse in a border in full sun, these diminutive claret flowers look great emerging from a screen of foliage, or against a backdrop of ornamental grasses. They gently fade as summer comes to a close.Garden care: For best effect plant the bulbs 8cm deep in natural drifts. Avoid soils that are too wet, and split and divide large clumps in autumn or spring.
