P. L. ixivides odorata is a fragrant bulbous plant which blooms under glass in March. The delicate blue flowers come in umbels on slender stems. Height about 18 in. Five bulbs should go to a 5 in. pot or they may be planted in a raised bed of soil. This plant does not succeed outdoors in Britain and even under glass it is erratic, though worth every care, as the flowers are most beautiful.
