2. Curious tufts of Leopoldia

No other bulbous plant, except for the beautiful leopoldia, can boast of its controversial reputation and narrow scope of use. This plant will give the impression of a nondescript and unattractive in any place, except for an alpine slide and rockery.

Against the background of a rocky landscape, the beauty of a plant with only a few leaves is revealed from a completely new side, since it is impossible to find another culture, the inflorescences of which would so resemble the head of a curious bird and would amaze with various associations.

Leopoldia tufted (Leopoldia comosa) is a modest plant, limited by peduncles up to 40 cm long. Rounded bulbs of a fairly compact size (about 5 cm in diameter) produce a bunch of wide, but nondescript and few leaves.

The most decorative feature of the leopoldia is its unusual inflorescence. At the top of a slender brush, a lush tuft of bright blue sterile flowers is collected, but the lower part of the inflorescence is covered with more nondescript brownish tubular flowers.

About 100 flowers are collected in the inflorescence of leopoldia, and the breeding jug-shaped flowers can be easily distinguished from the larger, elongated and decorative sterile ones. During flowering, the crest at the top of the inflorescence, as if coming out of the ground, really resembles curious birds.

Due to the fact that the leopoldia flowers are located already at the very base of the shoot, an even greater decorative effect is created. But in the period when the fruits begin to form, leopoldia, as if by magic, turns into a joyless sight, which can hardly be called a decoration of rock gardens.

One of the main advantages of leopoldia is its ease of growing. These plants are virtually analogous to the "mouse hyacinths" of muscari. They are completely unpretentious, grow well in any garden soil, thrive on alpine slides and rockeries.

If you provide them with a bright, open, sunny area, then the leopoldies will not need care at all. In fact, taking care of this plant boils down to removing unattractive greenery after it dies off at the end of the season. Frost-resistant and hardy, this baby is able to surprise anyone.
