I don't think anyone has answered Alberto about the hardiness of these 
bulbs. I only grow Phaedranassa and understood it was not very hardy and 
grow it in my greenhouse which we do not heat unless we have an unusually 
cold night. A friend had Phaedranassa planted in her garden in Santa Cruz, 
California and I remember wondering when I saw it if that was wise. She 
lost it the next year when it got colder than usual. I don't know the exact 
temperature was in her garden so can't convert it to metric, but I believe 
it was in the low twenties (F.)
