Hymenocallis hardiness

Dear All,

Now that we have archives that are searchable on the web we have people 
joining our list (mostly as lurkers) who have been intrigued by some of the 
posts they have read. Sometimes people read something and hit reply and the 
message comes to me and Arnold since it is written by someone who is not a 
member of the list. We invite those people to join us, but they don't 
always choose to do so.

This week we got a message from someone living in southeast 
Missouri  (Poplar Bluff) who was responding to a message wondering about 
the hardiness of Hymenocallis.  He grows two kinds that he says are hardy 
no matter what the winters are like.  One is H. caroliniana and the other 
H. liriosome which he got from an arboretum in Louisiana. He wrote that 
that bulb was cut in half when dug and it took 3 years to reestablish and 
is finally going to bloom.

I am passing on this information since he took the trouble to provide it.
