Why not grow something a little bit different this year and give the 'Caribbean Lily' a chance to wow any and all garden guests?
Also known as the 'Portuguese Squill', this is a glamorous Mediterranean bulb, which can be seen lighting up the herbaceous borders of grand estates and gardens up and down the country.
An absolute show-stopper that will bring a touch of class to any garden, whether placed in borders, or even on a decking or balcony in your very favourite container.
Looking much like a cross between a hyacinth and an allium, this bulbous perennial forms a rosette of narrowly lance-shaped dark green leaves which are semi evergreen, especially in mild winters.
Eye-catching, violet-blue flowers are the main attraction, each being a 1.5cm wide star, and carried in large, conical heads in early summer - perfect for bringing colour to beds, borders and patio pots when tulips have faded, and perennials are still gearing up.
Supplied as 3 bulbs, size 16/18 ready to plant out in autumn. They will ideally be planted in well-drained soil, in full sun or partial shade.
