Silver Chimes

Sugar Cups

Soleil d'Or

Soleil d'Or -- This is the true, brilliant colored form, the original type that dates back centuries. Known as the Scilly Isles or Guernsey type in the bulb trade. Deep golden yellow perianth, orange-red cups. A strong and vigorous plant, which although triploid, sets seed and has fertile pollen, making it useful for the hybridizer. One of the earlier ones to flower, and having numerous stems, 12-15 florets per stem. Stands out brightly in the garden.
