Triteleia 'Rudy' is a cormous perennial boasting loose umbels of up to 25 star-shaped white flowers adorned with broad violet-blue stripes down the center of each petal. Blooming in late spring to early summer, the eye-catching flowers rise on long, slender stalks until the plant goes dormant in summer. The foliage of long, grasslike, gray-green basal leaves emerges in late winter and dies back as the flowers appear. Easy to grow, undemanding, beautiful and adaptable, this plant is a charming addition to the landscape.

  • Growing up to 15-20 in. high (37-50 cm), this beauty will naturalize in optimum growing conditions and will come back year after year!
  • Easily grown in light, sandy, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun. In cold winter areas, apply a layer of mulch to protect this plant. Virtually disease-free and pest-free!
  • Stunning in beds, borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens or city gardens. For best visual impact, plant in groups (at least 10 bulbs). Mixes beautifully with low-growing perennials such as Lady's Mantle (Alchemilla mollis), perennial geraniums and short ornamental grasses. Long-lasting cut flowers with a great vase life.
  • Propagate by separating corms when dormant.
