A neat, upright growing species with airy foliage on dark purplish stems topped with mauve pink flowers in spring to 45cm. Ordinary soil in shade.
The name comes from the small dark purple-brown bulbils that form in the leaf axils after flowering. These provide an easy way to increase your stocks though the young plants can take three years to flower.
