Grand Monarque

Lemon Cups

Grand Primo

A standard variety for 200 years, this is super-vigourous with loads of florets per stem and lots of stems per bulb. Normally flowering in late February and March, the florets are white with a very light yellow center. Height 12". Commonly seen in old gardens in California and in the Texas and Gulf Coast areas, where it is often erroneously called "Grand Monarque."

Ideal for naturalizing and recognized as being well-suited to problem clay soils in Texas and elsewhere. Suitable for wet or dry locations. Flowering as early as January or early February in milder, wetter locations. Heavily scented. Good increaser.
