This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Already dug up ready to go - I was let down by 2 Freecycle responders. It has very pale pink flowers, & being in London flowers early, so has finished and fruited. Big clump, c.10-15kilos? I managed to separate about 6 smaller bulbs (all in leaf c. 50++cms tall) which are also available, separately or all, if you want them. All healthy

Must collect ASAP from W2 2NW, no pots included
