Your opinion on Lavender Mountain Lily bulbs or Lxiolirion

I've never grown this bulb and am wondering what your opinion is about it. Is it worth planting? Thanks much.

They are quite a pretty flower, I think they are well worth planting. I have a small clump that I planted about 3 years ago that blooms quite beautifully each year. They don't seem to spread that quickly in my garden, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing as that also means I'm not having to "weed" seedlings out.

Thanks for your quick reply, cls. I'm supposing the flower is smallish? About the size of a nickel maybe? Just curious. Also, the flower colors in catalogs aren't very accurate. Can you tell me if yours are a darker lavender or are they a light lavender?

I'm going to plant a whole lot of them in groups of 5 or 6 bulbs in the front and sides of the house. I don't care if they don't spread quickly either. So many things do and then you have to split them and give them away, etc. like Goldstrum Rudbekia. I really like them because they bloom all summer, but they spread like crazy.

Thanks for your help!

I planted them, and saw what looks like green onions. Never saw a flower at all. That was the first year...I want to dig them all up and throw them out.
