In my lectures on alpine plants I always talk about the amazing
adaptations they've made to survive in a harsh climate....I use the line:

"Adapt or die." 

It always gets a laugh, but applies to every living thing, including
our bulbs. Why else would they develop underground storage units,
disappear for part of the year, pull themselves down with contractile
roots? (Shall we go on....?)
