    Perennial bulbs. Sun or part shade. In my experience very sensitive to slugs and snails.

    do you need to lift them after they flower?

    I'm going to with mine. Also I'd advise pinching them out as they grow as I haven't and they have turned out quite leggy.

    I just couldnt get them to grow well, they flowered, went all yellow and soggy then died. I have left a couple in, the rest in the bin.
