O. dubium is a bright orange flowering bulb from South Africa. Despite this, it does well through much of the UK but if in doubt, lift and store over winter or grow in pots and move to a frost-free position.
Care: Plant in a sheltered position in autumn, with the neck of the bulb not far below the soil surface. Alternatively keep in pots and move to a frost free position in winter. As with most bulbs, it will usually do well providing the soil is very well drained in winter.
