La liste de géophytes de John Fielding
John Fielding, co-author of Flowers of Crete and a member of the RHS Photographic Advisory Committee, suggests these plants as suitable for the climate in Mediterranean France.
John Fielding, co-auteur de « Flowers of Crete » et membre du Conseil consultatif pour la photographie de la RHS, nous propose ces plantes comme adaptées à notre climat méditerranéen français.
Divide and transplant in autumn.
Plant against a warm wall.
Cultivated strains, such as the De Caen series, have larger flowers, perfect for cutting.
Forms from SW Turkey are ivory white in colour.
Good for naturalising.
Soon to be available from Avon Bulbs.
Cold tolerant as native to high altitudes.
The swollen rhizome-like stem should be at soil level.
Plant deeply to support the stem.
Can reproduce by means of stolons, so naturalises easily.
