This lovely cormous perennial has leaves which are narrow and ribbed and thin stems bearing slender tubed flowers with narrow petals which are cream to pink with red markings on the lower petals. Will do best in well-drained gritty loam in a sheltered spot, or a pot in the alpine house.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
