How to Plant

Dig a hole and tuck your bulb in, pointy side or indentation up with any dried roots remaining on the other side pointing down, about 6" deep. Not sure which way is which? Plant them sideways - they'll sort it out themselves. Now give your bulb a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, a long drink of water, and wait for spring.

Where to Plant

Find a place that gets partial shade, and space bulbs about 8-12" apart.

When to Plant

Plant in the fall, anytime before the ground freezes for the last time.

When to Expect Blooms

Mid spring

Care Instructions

Water once sprouts appear, if soil is very dry.

Extra Credit

Wait for the foliage to wilt and turn yellow before clipping it back, so that the bulb can preserve energy for the next year's blooms.
