Hi all,

Some of these plants grow well with "excessive" cold, too.  I have growing 
and blooming in my rock garden both Brodiaea coronaria and B. 
elegans.  Incidentally, both of these did lousy in my greenhouse before I 
tried them outdoors in the ground.

We grow others in a regular bed in the ground, including Triteleia ixioides 
scabra, T. bridgesii, Dichelostemma congestum, and Brodiaea 
californica.  We never tried these in the greenhouse.

I'd be glad to try other species in this family outdoors in the ground or 
in the rock garden if anyone wants to supply a few bulbs.  Test results 
would be returned in one year.
