Crowded heads of purple-crimson drumsticks, fine for cutting. The flowers open green, then start to turn purple from the top, creating unusual two-tone flower heads. Their attractive curled green leaves will wither before the flowers appear in early summer so we recommend accompanying them with low-growing perennials to provide filling foliage over the base areas. 5cm+ bulbs supplied.
