This rare and unusual plant from the mountains of Eastern Europe bears large airy umbels of violet flowers on 80 cm stem, the centres of the flower umbels being a most attractive shade of light green or purple. A choice and not often available specimen, and single bulbs of this scarce plant are very costly indeed. Few fertile seeds collected.
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, 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 pot 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.
