Bellevalia

What information are you after ?

The AGS Encyclopaedia states there are about 50 species from Europe, the Middle East and Russia. We grow about 12 of them generally in our bulb frames although many can be quite happily be grown outside in a sunny bed.

If there is a single one I would choose to grow it would have to be B. forniculata which has lovely bright blue flowers.
