Also known as 'Coral Drops', the Bessera Elegans resembles a cross between a Fuchsia and a Snowdrop. Vivid coral red flowers with contrasting inner creamy stripes provide a rare colour combination. Corms are small - but do not let that fool you - stems of up to 45cm tall will produce up to twenty individual flowers, producing an eruption of firecracker blooms in late summer. We recommend planting 7-10 corms per 30cm pot, in full sun for best results. Bessera Elegans is not frost hardy, so make sure to bring inside over winter and put back out as soon as the last frosts have vanished. Top quality 5+cm bulbs supplied. Flowers July to September. Height 60cm.
