A very large variety bearing umbels of distinct violet flowers. When flower is fully open it can measure up to 15cm in diameter. The beautiful curled green leaves will wither before the flowers appear in early summer so we recommend accompanying them with low-growing plants to provide filling foliage over the base areas and covering up those stems. Height 120cm. Flowers June-July. 18cm+ bulbs supplied.
