Also aptly named Coral Drops, Bessera elegans bursts into bloom in summer with delicate sprays of bright orange-red nodding blooms on elegant upright stems. Whether your garden is a technicolour paradise or you prefer to stick to cooler tones, these gorgeous plants bring a sophisticated and floaty show which will add that essential flash of red-hot colour to make any summer planting scheme zing. 

Perfect for sunny borders or pots, these tender bulbs can be planted straight into the ground in late spring or given a head start by planting in pots indoors. With soft, grass-like foliage and slender stems, these swaying beauties grow to around 70cm tall providing colour at a height as well as a lovely relaxing movement. Best planted in groups for maximum impact, Bessera elegans also make unusual and long-lasting cut flowers, so make sure you plant plenty to enjoy both indoors and out!
