This is one tough plant...
Planted near the base of a large Doug fir, in a bed that is not irrigated, this bulbous plant has done exceedingly well in this situation.
Commonly known as 'Grecian Windflower', this plant performs best in a sunny, well-drained soil. Where we have it sited, the plant has multiplied, but in a good way (versus one of those, 'Oh my God' ways...). The foliage emerges in early spring, with a good six to eight weeks of flowers, before dying down by early summer.
