Product Information

Triteleia Brodiaea 'Queen Fabiola' is as fabulous as its name suggests, with clusters of pretty, star-shaped flowers of deep purple-blue with blue anthers, rising amid narrow-leaved foliage. The bright-green, grasslike leaves appear in spring and die down as the flowers open, creating a spectacular display of agapanthus-like, airy blooms from May to July.

Reaching a height of up to 45cm, these hardy perennials are perfect for beds and borders, rock gardens and containers. They will gradually naturalise and spread if left in the ground or can be lifted after flowering and stored over winter for replanting in the spring.

Easy to grow, they are ideal for low-maintenance gardening. The long-lasting blooms look pretty in a vase or as an ingredient in a casual bouquet. Plant in groups of at least 10 bulbs for a stunning display and in quantities enough for a good supply of cut flowers.

Supplied as a pack of 50 bulbs, this elegant perennial will return year after year, with bigger and better displays. Plant them with other summer-flowering bulbs or low-growing perennials.

Top Tips

  • Plant as soon as you receive your bulbs, as early as you can in autumn so that they can establish a good root system before winter.
  • Add mycorrhizal fungi to the roots before planting to encourage faster and more reliable establishment.
  • If lifting and storing bulbs over winter, dusting with fungicide will help keep them healthy.

Care Information

  • Plant in the autumn, 8-10cm deep, 10cm apart, in moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil, although they will tolerate a heavy soil.
  • They are happy in an open or sheltered position and can withstand high temperatures, but keep well-watered through the growing season.
  • Winter hardy, but mulch to protect from extreme cold and wet.
  • Unless leaving in the ground, once the foliage has begun to die back, dig up the bulbs for storing. Separate large corms when dormant for propagation. Clean the soil from the bulbs and discard any that appear damaged or diseased. Cut off dead and dying leaves and allow to dry thoroughly, then store at 18-20C (65-68F), in a dark, well-ventilated place for replanting in the autumn or following spring.
