Description
 
An extraordinary variant from Linda Cochran's (of course) old garden which she allowed us to salvage when moving.  Distinctly mocha foliage in early spring, with various plant parts retaining dark tones.  Notably, the flower stem is very dark as are the bracts enclosing the flower bud.  The flowers are lovely, white and richly colored in dark maroon.  These are young 3 year old bulbs from isolated, hand-pollinated seed.  It will be 3-4 years before these flower but lengthy establishment will result in maximum size.
