One of the longer blooming bulbs out there, this west coast native offers MULTIPLE 3-4’ tall flower stalks topped by clusters of 2”, light violet flowers beginning in late Spring. The 6-petaled, star-shaped flowers open from the bottom and work their way to the top, prolonging the bloom season. Strappy leaves form a 2’x2’ clump, providing a complementary green base. Planted in drifts, it makes a fantastic show in any sunny bed. This resilient bulb will naturalize via bulbils in your garden, even in clayish soils. Deer resistant but popular with bees! Plant in well-drained fertile soil. Wait till foliage starts to wither or yellow before removing. Excellent as a cut flower.
