It's a striking, long-lasting addition to cut-flower arrangements too, so florists prize Queen Fabiola. Plant it in a spot that has plenty of sun and this fabulous perennial will naturalize easily—perfect for woodland borders or wildflower gardens. It has that's won several awards; the Trial Garden Award, the Award of Merit and the First Class Certificate. As this American native has been around so long, it goes by many different names. Brodiaea 'Queen Fabiola', or Triteleia laxa 'Queen Fabiola', is commonly known as Ithuriel's Spear, Triplet Lily, Pretty Face or Wild Hyacinth. It's also called Fool's Onion for its similarity to dwarf alliums, and is actually preferable to the garlicy smell dwarf alliums sometimes bear.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.
