27th March 2010

A very pretty pale pink flowered form of the species. For a long time it was distributed as 'George Baker' and caused much confusion with that cultivar until a new name was coined for it.
It grows well in a pot, though it is difficult to keep it cool and moist when dormant, but it dies out in the ground when I plant it.

I have had more success growing it in a raised bed in full sun. It produces a bold splash of colour in early spring.

I thought that it had died out in the woodland but an occasional flower demonstrates its remarkable survival. Growth has been slow but I hope it may continue to grow slowly.
