Howdy All,

Leucojum roseum does fine here in my Canberra garden in a small pot.  We
get to -8'c most winters and no problem at all to the L. roseum.  A
difficult little beastie to photograph as it is so difficult to get the
darn focus on such tiny little flowers or leaves <grin>.

Definitely much slower multiplying that L. autumnale and I find it tends to
be much shorter for me.  Always a joy each year as it is at such a baking
time of year for us and it is nice to have these little dears pop up
"unexpectedly" almost overnight.
