It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
In any case, the Dutch hybridizers have made a really beautiful flower from this 'American Beauty' and named it for another famous beauty: Queen Fabiola of Belgium.
BH&G showed how it's great for cutting and creating a stunning blue/purple arrangement.
BH&G also tells us that the foliage of this bulb is nothing much, so it's best planted among hostas or other low foliage plants, so the stunning flower spikes rise through neighboring leaves.

Comments about American Meadows Starflower Bulbs Queen Fabiola:
These flowers are very tiny. They are nice color however lighter in color than the picture and not nearly as many blooms.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
