Variety: Gavota
Flowering heights:  16 ins
Month:  March into April
Clare Bulb Co comment: Introduced by us in 2017, Gavota has replaced Abu Hassan, which in recent years has been increasingly prone to Fusarium. It is similar in colour, with the same gray-green leaves. Very striking in containers, but also useful in a bed. In the upper picture below the flowers have just opened. The picture underneath shows them in full flower in one of our borders at the end of April. They remain in flower for up to four weeks, even in periods of heavy rain, such as spring 2018.
