Half-hardy bulbous plants, generally cultivated in the border.
They should be planted from September to January, in a rich sandy loam, setting the bulbs 4 in. deep and about 2 in. apart. Protect in the whiter months with a covering of Utter, and in March mulch the surface with decayed cow manure. Increase by offsets treated as bulbs.
Pvlcherrima bears rose-coloured bell-flowers. The flowers appear in September on 4 ft. stems. This variety can also be grown successfully in pots.
