An attractive plant growing from underground bulbs, 'Charlotte Bishop' has dusky pink flowers which appear early in the year - very early if the plant is kept under cover. The long strappy leaves die down for summer and re-emerge in autumn. It's a lovely plant and has some character. About 6" (15cm) high at most.
We find 'Charlotte Bishop' the most reliable with us and it multiplies easily without being invasive. Hardy, in so much as it will stand up to low temperatures, but the roots dislike being too wet, so place it well in the garden. It makes a good specimen for a pot in the alpine house too.
We send these out as plants growing in a pot, not loose bulbs.
