    Frequently Asked Questions

    Brodiaea Queen Fabiola, also known as Triteleia laxa, is a beautiful perennial bulb that produces star-shaped, purple-blue flowers. To plant these bulbs:

    • Choose a sunny or partially shaded location with well-draining soil.
    • Loosen the soil to a depth of 4-5 inches and amend with compost or organic matter if necessary.
    • Plant the bulbs 2-3 inches deep and space them 3-4 inches apart.
    • Water the area thoroughly after planting, and ensure it receives consistent moisture throughout the growing season.
    • Apply a layer of mulch to help retain moisture and regulate soil temperature.
    • Brodiaea Queen Fabiola bulbs are typically planted in fall, and will bloom in late spring or early summer, but planting them in spring is also an option.

    The Brodiaea Queen Fabiola bulb is a late spring to early summer bloomer, showcasing its stunning purple-blue flowers in clusters atop slender stems. The specific bloom time depends on the climate and location, but typically falls between May and June.

    Each flower can last for several months, providing a lovely display in your garden. To extend the blooming period, consider planting bulbs in successive waves, spacing them out over a few weeks in the fall.

    Brodiaea Queen Fabiola, known for its captivating purple-blue flowers, typically reaches a modest height when fully grown. The plants usually grow to a height of 12-24 inches (30-60 cm) tall, with slender, sturdy stems that display its star-shaped flowers.

    These flowers form in clusters at the top of the stems, creating an eye-catching and graceful appearance. The foliage, comprised of long, narrow, grass-like leaves, grows at the base of the plant and remains relatively low. As a result, Brodiaea Queen Fabiola is a perfect choice for borders, rock gardens, and mixed flower beds, providing a striking vertical element in various garden designs.

    Brodiaea Queen Fabiola is a perennial bulb in USDA hardiness zone 5 and up, meaning it returns year after year. Unlike annual plants, which complete their life cycle within a single growing season, perennials like Brodiaea Queen Fabiola come back each spring or summer, providing a consistent source of color and interest in your garden.

    The bulbs remain dormant underground during the winter months, storing energy for the upcoming growing season. Planting these low-maintenance, hardy perennials can create a long-lasting display that requires minimal effort, making them an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners alike.

    In regions with colder climates, such as USDA zones 4 and below, the Brodiaea bulbs must be dug up and stored properly until the next spring
