Ixiolirion tataricum is the botanical name of your Lavender Mountain Lily bulbs. Plant them in lean soil, in full sunshine after your last frost of the season. They thrive in the heat so don't be in a hurry to plant them just yet! Plant the bulbs three inches deep and 2-3 inches apart. They are hardy perennial bulbs so once you plant them, they should return year after year, blooming in the early summer. Enjoy!
