Dear LAuw and all.
	A few years ago I saw L. radiata and another species growing 
in the wild in Hunan Province. This is a Zone 7 or 8 equivalent 
climate. They were growing in very damp soil along a stream and the 
bulbs were 80 to 90 percent exposed. The roots were not visible, but 
by tipping the flowering stem ( it was August) the roots were easily 

	In colder climates like mine, L. radiata is quite deep - 
maybe 6 inches to the base of the bulbs.

	Just a few observations.		Jim W,
