Dear All;
	Here in Kansas City* S. lutea is hardy and trouble free for 
the most part. They do not multiply fast, but do so slowly and 
eventually. Never tried them in pots for comparison, but hardiness is 
not a problem.
	One year I bought some mail order and one of them turned out 
to be the uncommon species S. colchiciflora with distinct foliage and 
flower. It has neither off set or set seed, but remains a single bulb.
	Best	Jim W.

* Soils here are all alkaline. Summer hot and dry.
