A very ornamental and easily grown plant. The flowers are malodorous according to one report, whilst another says that they have a powerful oriental perfume. Stem rooting, it is best planted 15cm deep in semi-shade. The plant should be protected against slugs in early spring. If the shoot tip is eaten out the bulb will not grow in that year and will lose vigour.Bulbs are best planted out into their permanent positions in early to mid-autumn in cool temperate zones and up to late autumn in warmer areas, this allows them to become established before new top growth commences in spring.
