Out of what came to me labelled as 'White Splendor' a few bulbs survived in 
my lawn for several years.  I eventually moved the survivors to my woodland 
garden, where they still seem to be thriving.  And, it looks as if they 
have seeded around a bit!  I did not pay strict attention to them, but I 
could check more carefully this year.

Of course, they may not have been the clone 'White Splendor or at least one 
of them may not have been.
