  1. Plus squirrels ignore them, right? Must get some in my garden. Beautiful, plus I guess naturalizing habit somewhat offsets big initial cost.

  2. I know what you mean. I adore these bulbs but look at the price and say “may-be next year”. Perhaps it’s time to say may-be this year.

  3. i first saw this flower in the gardens outside Blarney Castle in Ireland. I was literally blown away by this, how it could even exist. A checkered pattern on a flower?!? and the almost boxy shape of the petals? what?!
    love it.
