I ordered mine from Brent & Becky's, have not had it's first bloom yet, but bulbs look good. It says on their web site that it needs well drained soil. Flower is white w/ violet stripes.

The flowers are bell or funnel shaped and are creamy white with dark grape midveins. They do flush with some being a paler purple.
