Ixiolirion tataricum - how hardy and long-lived is it?

I'm really pleased to see this new wiki page and the pretty flowers. I've 
always wondered if they really bloomed. Like Jane, I've bought these a 
number of times from commercial sources and have never seen them flower, 
nor have they lasted longer than perhaps the second year. I finally 
concluded they weren't meant to be in my garden. They definitely need more 
than just a dry summer. I tried in Stockton too where it is much warmer in 
the summer.
