Product Details
An exceptional species which is rarely offered. Stems rise from flattened bulbs in early spring and carry numerous lance-shaped glossy deep-green leaves with prominent veins. Flowers are obviously the main attraction here. These are borne in multiples at the stem tips with as many as 8 flowers opening in rapid succesion until all are open. Flower colour is rusty orange-red to the inner and darker on the outside petals making a spectacular sight and a talking point in any garden. Likes to run around in the soil but is not invasive, smaller than the species at around 20 cms high. Please note that the subspecies name is a little misleading in that it is double flowered (multi-petalled) not many flowered!
