- Culture Notes
- This unusual bulb does best in well drained soil with full sun, but will tolerate clay. It resents summer watering and is very drought tolerant. The foliage will grow in late winter and spring then begin to die back as the flower stems form. Once flowering has finished the faded flowers and stems can be cut to the ground. This bulb is best planted in fall.
