I live in Northern Calif.  I purchased a beautifublooming dierama about 4 
years ago from Suncrest nursery.  At that time I didn't evevn realize it was a 
corm.  I took it out of the pot and planted it on the slope in front of my home. 
 It has  summer sun, shaded a bit in winter, good drainage, gets summer water 
there and only what nature provides in the winter.  I was very disappointed 
the first 2 years as it did not bloom.  However, this year it bloomed 
beautifully and has grown into a sizable clump.  I took some of it out and gave it to a 
daughter who lives elsewhere. That's when I discovered it was a cluster of 
corms or bulbs.   I still have a small clump left and assume it will continue to 
bloom.  I disturbed it as little as possible when removing some for my
