It has a cluster of up to ten pendant, bell-shaped, pale greenish-yellow flowers under a tuft of upright shiny foliage atop a rigid, strong stem. Lance-shaped foliage adorns the lower portion of the flowering stem. It also has delicate interior beauty with hazy green-edged white nectories that appear like little eyes. Occasionally, some flowers elevate to be outward facing. You’ll need about four bulbs per square foot. Bulb size: 16/18 cm. Full to dappled sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April. Plant 6" to 7" deep and 8" to 10" apart. HZ: 5-8. Height: 24" to 32".
