I've been growing this beauty for years and I love it!

It blooms during the month of May and the flowers are beautiful! The flowers are a pleasing color of blue. It is an easy plant to grow and maintain. I have even had enough to share with a neighbor of mine and the bulbs were big and a nice size to share.

I haven't had any problems with it while growing it.

I'm surprised that I don't have any photos of it to post for as long as I have been growing it. I'll try and get some this year.
