Gorgeous snowy white petals with fringed tips. The fringe looks like frayed fabric. Pure white. Great for cut flowers.

Best look obtained from planting in groups of 5 or more.

Prefers full sun, but can take a little shade. Can be grown in containers, too. In warmer climates, these bulbs need a chilling period before planting.
