This grower is sure of this plant identification.

I'm offering bulbs here - I've just dug up a patch from the garden and have bulbs of all sizes. Happy to share! (The plant size of the listing is for when they are in full flower - it's not the size of the bulbs)! They're lovely as cut or dried flowers.

Pick them up from me or can drop them off in Bideford when I'm next in.
