  • Posted by gardengus (Indiana Zone 5b) on Jun 4, 2013 7:41 PM concerning plant:
    An inexpensive little bulb that gives a good early spring show and multiplies with time.
    Benefits from soaking the tubers over night before planting
    They make a nice spring border and are equally good under taller bulbs.
    I have them planted under my dogwood tree.
