Description

Triteleia genus (Spring star flower). These are late spring and early summer-flowering corms with wiry stems. The flowers are produced in umbels of funnel-shaped blooms. The leaves are long and narrow but will usually die away by the flowering time. They are frost hardy and will need an open but sheltered, sunny situation with well drained soil that dries out to some extent in the summer. You can propagate by seeds or offsets in the autumn.
