This bulb from Northern India and Nepal has umbels of white, spider-shaped flowers from August to September. Plant out into well drained soil or a deep pot with a loam based compost John Innes No.2 with added grit for drainage. If growing in a pot plant with the neck of the bulb just showing through the compost surface. Various sources report it to be borderline hardy. It would be best to keep it overwintered in a frost free greenhouse just to be sure.
