Good to force.
May be translocated into garden for blooms in subsequent years.

Topolino - white petals with a creamy yellow trumpet; it's dwarf in size and resembles the little trumpet naturalized throughout the southeast; great for rock gardens forced in pots and in patio containers; 8-10"; early-midseason. 10/12 cm bulbs"
