Prefers generally moist, fertile soil, unlike most bulbs, it prefers soil that has a bit more moisture. In full sun to partial sunlight. Not eaten by stock so great in a field with animals. Will naturalise. They clump well and will grow from seed.  Each contains  dozens of six-petaled, 4cm, star-shaped pale to deep lavender-blue flowers with yellow anthers and whisper-green centers. The flowers open sequentially from the bottom to the top, one of the later bulbs to bloom in spring. Stunning planted in solo drifts, as there are a variety of shades both with different bulbs and as the inflorescences age. I use them as a layer of later blooming bulbs over, (the foliage), cyclamen  com, daffodils and more. Plant deeply. 40cm H. Price per bulb.  I have so many, but they are so deep and hard to dig up.  I am not certain of the species, but the shades are lovely and variable, darkest violet to pale blue/ mauve almost white.
