Naturalizes very well. Comes through low ground cover. Can become invasive, but beautifully.

A reliable bloomer, and very pretty. A mole took the bulbs on a trip to about 18" deep but did not eat them! I recovered them and replanted last fall; they came right back up this spring as you can see in my picture. (And I bought a mole chaser.)
