Native to rocky hillsides from SW and Central Asia (Syria to Afghanistan), this lovely wildflower in the Amaryllis family bears umbels of starry violet-blue flowers with darker midveins above grass-like foliage for 3 to 4 weeks in late May and early June.
Perfect for the well-drained xeriscape garden, this delightful bulb will thrive in a dry, sunny spot where it receives some spring moisture, followed by hot, dry conditions in summer, and will self-sow and naturalize where it’s happy.
Some added bonuses are its resistance to browsing by deer and rabbits and its great performance as a cut flower. Hardy to Zone 5. 10” – 16” tall. Deer-proof! Plant 5” deep, 4” apart.
