#ProPlantTips for Care:Fall-planted bulbs require full sun and well-drained soil. Appreciating afternoon shade in warmer hardiness zones where the sun is intense. Any soil type is suitable so long as it is not soggy. Add bulb fertilizer to each hole for best results. Deadhead after flowers fade, but let the leaves remain so they can make food for the bulb and next year’s flowers! Not only is it strong, but it also has incredible endurance. Its blooms endure through spring showers and days of sunshine.
