Description
In Spring 2006, Better Homes & Gardens carried a great story called American Beauties' in the April issue. It explained all about this elegant wildflower group from our northern Pacific Coast, and recommends this exact variety--Queen Fabiola. The beautiful wild species, Triteleia laxa, is native all the way south to Southern California. The flowers look much like clusters of the beautiful Blue Eyed Grass, which is a small wild iris.

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.
