Bulbs for Spring Planting:
Plant bulbs as soon as possible, once you have received your shipment. Refer to the variety product page under the Growing Information tab for individual planting tips per bulb type. If you cannot plant the bulbs as soon as they have been shipped to you, remove the bulbs from plastic bags and put them on trays with damp peat moss or sawdust in a cool, well-ventilated place until you have a chance to plant them. Do not let the bulbs freeze. Plant outdoors once the conditions are right for your hardiness zone.
Belonging to the genus Triteleia, this variety grows well in full sun to part shade but must have exceptionally well-drained soil. Because the grass-like foliage often disappears before blooming starts, plant the bulbs in groups of at least 6 and leave the clumps undisturbed. Plant the bulbs 4” apart and 4”-6” deep.
