  • Comments: They are most effective in groups of three or more for 3 - 5 foot area. Needs winter protection. Remove flowers as they fade. Leave foliage intact until it dies back naturally.

The strong smell of the bulbs does repel moles and other burrowing animals but the customer should not rely on this alone.
