Although our 'Grand Maitre' is only 10 cm high, visually it is one of the very big ones: its purple to lavender-blue flowers have an almost blue-black base, creating an exciting contrast that attracts the eye. The stems themselves shimmer in a fascinating purple and stand out from the refreshing green leaves. If you, too, want to enjoy this sight in March, all you have to do is put some autumn flower bulbs in the bed or in your tubs and boxes in the fall. Even less work makes the Verwilderung. A little tip: Plant 'Grand Maitre' in groups to a sunny to partially shaded spot.
