A Division 8 Tazetta, 'Falconet' was a Grant Mitsch introduction. A mid spring bloomer, 12-14" tall.

We had good success forcing it in pots, where the bloom displayed a yellow perianth and an orange crown. We counted up to 6 florets per stem.

Neutral smiln32 On Nov 22, 2004, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

This tazetta is lovely, with up to 8 flowers per stem. It reaches a height of 12" and is very fragrant. Bulbs can be forced indoors or grown outdoors where they naturalize very well. Flowers have bright yellow petals and red-orange cups.
