Both of you are in mild climates but that are cooler than mine all year 
And you both have them in the ground. Mine have been in pots.

Maybe the combination of my warmer climate and being in pots means the 
roots or tubers get too hot. Or maybe they just don't like being in 

I'm going to try some in the ground.
