|F. acmopetala is a perennial with linear shaped blue-green folliage growing alternately along stems. Flowers are light green, with redish brown tepals, bell-shaped and pendent. They are usually borne singly on a stem, or sometimes in pairs or threes in the lower leaf axis. They are 1 1/2 inches long. Native to Cyprus, SW Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon.
The large, skunky-smelling bulb is rodent-repellent, and is very succeptible to bulb rot if improperly stored. For best results, plant bulb on its side, at a depth 4 times the diameter of the bulb. Water moderately while in growth, but reduce to almost dry when bulb is dormant. For container plants, repot
yearly in fresh soil. Second year and older plants should be fertilized monthly with half strength fertilizer.
