April - May height 6"-10" (15-25 cm)
Bellevalia romana has a fine white bell-shaped flower in loose trusses and ... blue-black stamens! That makes her special and it is extra fun to watch the bees .. follow the blue pollen pants!
A big advantage: it blooms at the start of May. A great successor for the grapes, and leading up to the small-flowered ornamental onions.
We find her beautiful and are happy to be able to offer the bellevalia this year, a special species that you don't see much. She is very similar to grapes and was originally classified with the hyacinth family (hyacinthus romana). After the botanical tulips, all hyacinths are exuberant and welcome in early May.
Bellevalia Romana likes a sunny spot. It originates in the wild in meadows in Greece, Turkey and southern France. Especially in the summer, these are quite dry, so give her a place with similar warmth and well-drained soil. Beautiful in grass, great in a border.
