Compact and short growing. Long lasting small flowers with white petals and short lemon-yellow trumpets in early to mid-spring.

Best in moderately fertile, well drained soil. Needs reasonable moisture while in growth early in the year but dormant bulbs will survive drought and hot summers. Sun or part shade.
Plant bulbs at one and half times their own size or a little deeper. Allow foliage to die back naturally after flowering.

Excellent for naturalising.
