10 Bulbs per Bag

One of the first Spring bulbs to bloom in mild Winter gardens, ‘Rolf Fiedler’ is an uplifting sight in February, with lots ofdeliciously honey-scented,long-lasting 1” flowers, delicate purple with a darker stripe. They makelong-lasting cut flowersin a small vase, possibly the best way to enjoy the scent, since the plant otherwise hugs the ground 4-6” high, with short 6-10” flower stems. Very easy to grow in a sunny or lightly shaded area (morning shade or filtered shade is OK) and tolerant of many soil conditions. It’ll be Summer dormant, but the leaves return in the cooler temperatures of Fall. Recommended for edging, pots and as an underplanting with trees and roses. Known to naturalize, but deadheading the flowers will keep it contained. In my personal garden, ‘Rolf Fiedler’ has been more restrained that the better known variety ‘Wisley Blue’. Plant bulbs 4” deep and 2 – 3” apart.
