Mixed Baboon Flowers

The sweet fragrance of this jewel-colored mix is perfect in small gardens or containers. The delightful, compact flowers bloom early to mid-spring in a variety of hues. Interesting fact - this unique flower gets its name from baboons' fondness for digging up the corms for food.
