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 very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
