Parish Bitton
Habitat Scrub at field edge near Pipley Brook and beside a footpath
Notes Well established on the edge of the field and beside the brook. Also quite frequent in gardens and on roadside hedge banks around the village. Probably a named variety and one of the bulbs available at the local plant nursery which is/was not far away. Its overall size and flower size is about 50% larger than normal but the flowers hang on quite short stalks from the leafy bract above.
