Nectaroscordum siculum is closely related to the allium family, with stiff, upright stems that add a strong vertical element to planting schemes. Intriguing umbrellas of waxy, bell shaped flowers top the tall, glaucous stems from May to June. Each delicate bloom is deep cream flushed with pretty rose-pink stripes. As the flowers set seed, they stand upright on their stems, forming an interesting shuttlecock appearance that looks fabulous in dried flower arrangements. Despite its exotic looks, Nectaroscordum bulbs are perfectly hardy. Plant them throughout sunny borders and gravel gardens with room to seed about to create magnificent groups. Height: 120cm (48"). Spread: 10cm (4").

Grow nectaroscordum bulbs in fertile, light, well drained soil in full sun or semi shade. Avoid planting in cold wet soils as the bulbs are prone to rot in these conditions. Plant the bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4") and a distance of 10cm (4") apart. A slow release fertilizer can be added to poor soils at the time of planting to improve fertility.
Nectaroscordum plants require little maintenance and will seed about freely in light soils to create magnificent groups. Divide overcrowded clumps of nectaroscordum in autumn.
