Where to plant?
Anywhere except full shade. In the Mediterranean native habitat my bulbs originate in soils ranging from the very sandy shoreline to rocky cliffs and mountains to sticky terra rosa clay from which pottery is made. So whatever your soil type, they'll do well.

In the driest places, an added mulch will reward you with lusher growth and taller stems. Beware of articles saying you must have good soil to grow bulbs - that doesn't apply to these!
