There are a few examples of the species growing around the garden. They tend to die out
after a couple of years so I am looking for a drier sunny location to see if they prefer it.

Over the last couple of years I have been planting my odd bulbs in pots and planters around the place,
and they seem to prefer being slightly raised in a free draining compost.
I tend to pick up odd plants in garden centres, whenever I see something with attractive
markings on the inner segments, so they are a varied bunch.
The markings on the inner segments vary enormously. Those with a single small green mark
on the inner segments are grouped as var. monostictus, all the more complex arrangements
are treated as , though at times the distinction is
not entirely clear.
