This beautiful and dainty cottage garden border plant has already put on its first flower in my garden and with plenty more still yet to. The colour combination of white petals and green stigma are a favourite of mine and they look like jewels held up just above the soil. I have them as under planting with Euphorbia x martini’ and they truly make beautiful border companions. Plant the bulbs in autumn time for a wonderful spring display.
