Description
citrina - bright golden yellow; small flowers; 4" tall.

Native to Mexico, Colombia and Guatemala, these starry, upfacing, crocus-like flowers appear several times a season, especially after a rain on 8"-12" stems. The main show, which is generally in August-September, is fantastic, especially coming up through ground covers and its narrow foliage is almost invisible. It makes a great edging plant since its strap leaves resemble Liriope, but it doesn't smother other plants. These pest proof bulbs don't seem to be picky about the soil, but they are happier in full sun. (We purchase sterile potting mix to pack these bulbs so they won't dry out. Blooms early summer until frost; top size bulbs; 8-10 per sq. ft.; zones 7-10.
