Triteleia Aquarius

Triteleia Aquarius

As the hot days of summer approach, the charming colors of spring-blooming flowers begin to fade from the landscape. Offer your customers or clients a gorgeous double-flowered bulb variety that will quickly fill the spaces left behind by the departing spring blooms. Triteleia Aquarius bestows an abundance of 1" flowers in a rich, deep blue hue to full sun borders, cutting gardens and mass plantings. Though they are highly attractive to garden visitors, hungry deer won't bother them, so there's no danger of losing half your planting to these animal pests. We like this unique variety sited alongside yellow, pink or white flowering plants in the summer garden.
  • Hardiness Zones 5-9
  • Mature Height 16 - 20 inches
  • Bloom Time Early summer
  • Light Requirements Full Sun
  • Deer Resistant
  • Cut Flower
