This attractive bellevalia has bi-colored inflorescence, flowers turning from a bright lilac-blue to pale brownish green on opening with long basal leaves spreading on the ground. In its native environments of Italy, Greece and western Turkey, it occurs on rocky hillsides, but is easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
