Cassata has split, yellow cups that lie flat against the cream to white perianths almost covering them. The cup ages to a creamy white.

Loves a well drained soil in sun or dappled shade and will form clumps where happy. They're long lived cut flowers for early to mid Spring.

Plant about 6 inches deep in Autumn and wait for them to appear!

Won't come true from seed but you can divide the clumps to propagate them.
