    So what's not to like! Vibrant bloom, very care free and multiplies like crazy. Has probably tripled in three years. I thinned the original group of 10 bulbs and planted in groups of three here and there in the garden. The display this spring was OK but I'm expecting a better display next year. A large grouping leaves a big empty space later in the season.
