The connections between the New World and the old have given us many inspiring crops – and a few we’d wonder how we live without before. But of its ornamentals, the delightfully diverse Calochortus is among the most beguiling. Often called Globe Tulips, Mariposa Tulips, or Star Tulips, Calochortus is also the genus that gives us the charmingly-named Pussy Ears. What do they all have in common? Gorgeous detail, oodles of charm. And something not just any one will happen to have in their garden. Although they’re known as being rather tricky to grow from seed, getting Calochortus bulbs helps you to escape the tricky propagation phase and leap straight into success! Ready for something different? You just found it!
