Dear Jim et all,
 T. sylvestris grows naturally here in the "garrigues" around Montpellier.
In our garden it has prooved to be very persistant. Loads of hem are in a
bed for at least 10 years in spite of severe flooding and being rotavated
regularly, they return every year (with plenty of seed). The small bulbs
must et least 20-30 cm (8-12") deep, where is pretty cool and well out of
reach of moles.  Hélàs, Jim,  the ssp australis (also called T.australis) is
not very common here and is not on offer.
Kind greetings
