Gardeners' Notes:

A huge positive! Stunning in full bloom, and lasts a good three weeks in April/May. Needs water when growing, less so in the Summer when it will go dormant. Seems to have no pests and diseases, all the color forms are lovely, but the blue is my favorite.

This daisy-like flower is produced from small corms that should be planted 2" deep. It thrives in the garden bed or in pots and containers and will naturalize in USDA zones 5-8, for sure and probably to zone 4. Blooms March - April, depending upon the zone you're in.

It can be planted under shrubs, in rock gardens, in beds and borders. Should be planted in autumn. Abundant flowering. Tolerates summer drought, but keep moist during fall and spring. Plants are 4" tall.
