Dear Danny:
                 Your Sternbergias must be moved immediately after flowering 
is over as bulbs protruding from the ground can't be more different than 
conditions for these plants in Nature. I have learnt a lot from Angleo 
Porcelli, a great guy from S. Italy and it was a surprise to learn that 
Sternbergia (and Pancratium, among many others) have their bulbs very deep 
in the ground, well over a foot or more. I subsequently adjusted my growing 
conditions for them and they have done a lot better.

Argentina, zone 9 in winter, zone 10 in summer, year round rains
