Sternbergia genus (Lily-of-the-field). This genus consists of about 8 species of perennial flowering bulbs. They produce large, crocus-like flowers which appear in the spring or the autumn, and are related to daffodils. They are frost hardy but in cool areas grow against a sunny wall. They will need a hot sunny site in any well drained, heavy or light soil that dries out in the summer. You can propagate by division in the spring or autumn.
