I did not actually order this bulb, but somehow it came along with another cultivar I ordered and planted in 2011. Has come back for two years in a row and I'm delighted about it.

Of the doubles I have, this is my favorite. The cup is very interesting ... somehow reminds me of scrambled eggs. Blooms in April in my garden.

Neutral dcarlton On Jun 18, 2008, dcarlton from Omaha, NE wrote:

This is the double form of Ice Follies and also as vigorous. It comes back reliably for me in solid clay soil. However, the blossoms cannot stand up to much rain.
