Large goblet shaped flower heads. Bright orange stamens surrounded by lilac-blue petals. The outer petal has a silvery sheen and is marked with purple veining where it tapers out to its fleshy stem.

A pure delight in early spring that, if left undisturbed, will multiply year after year. The RHS have given Etruscus Zwanenburg their prestigious Award of Garden Merit. 5/6cm corms supplied.
