Brodiaea ‘Queen Fabiola’ is a no fuss bulb that will naturalise easily. The flowers open in succession for a commendable period (around 4-6 wks) offering delightful, late season colour. As an added bonus, the blooms can last up to 2 weeks in a vase.
Triteleia (syn. Brodiaea) seem to fade in and out of favour so get them while you can!
The deep purple flowers open in loose clusters of up to 25 blooms. They bloom after the foliage, which soon disappears as the floral show begins.
Brodiaea ‘Queen Fabiola’ bulbs are survivors and they will cope with snow and sun. You could plant the bulbs amid grasses, at the front of borders, in a patch by themselves or as part of a rockery.
Endemic to California, Brodiaea ‘Queen Fabiola’ is perfect for the similar Australian climate. They are also known as Wild Hyacinths. ‘Queen Fabiola’ bulbs cope well in the dry and are best left undisturbed.
