I tried these just once. They were available with the fall bulbs and I put them in in Sept. or Oct. and they started up right away. They froze out almost completely during the winter. I think one may have survived, but in any case it dies the next winter.

As Len said, it's a winter grower in the northern hemisphere and in 7B, it doesn't make it, unless a very protected and warm situation can be had. Not sure if fall-purchased ones can be vernalized.
