10 Bulbs per Bag

One of the prettiest and easiest bulbs you can grow! This California native features tubular, milky-blue flowers contrasted with vivid indigo mid-veins. 14” tall, grassy foliage provides a delicate support for this Summer bloomer. Umbels of 2” elongated flowers seem to pop up overnight in late Spring and last well into mid-Summer. Make sure to plant this reliable bulb en masse for a wonderfully showy woodland flower display. It will naturalize readily in most soils and a bit of regular moisture during the growing season will bring you a fuller display each year. Brodiaeas are a perfect complement planted in front of smaller perennials like Gaillardias and Agastache or they can be a fine addition to a bed of cool blues and purples. Makes an excellent cut flower.
