Dierama corms

Dear All,

Yesterday I decided to dig out and throw out a patch of Dierama that hadn't 
bloomed for a couple of years and even though I had cut back the dead 
leaves was looking unattractive. It had reseeded itself into a shady area 
and either it didn't have enough light to bloom any more or was too 
crowded. I was amazed when I saw the corms so added a picture of "some" of 
them to the wiki. Like Crocosmia corms they were one on top of another, at 
least ten deep and some of those split so there could be one, two, or three 
layers. No wonder they are hard to dig out.
