Perhaps people are planting them too shallow.  I planted some last year 
acording to package directions and they hardly grew at all but I remembered 
how fantastic they grew for me 30 years before.  Many instructions say 2-3 
inches where it should be at least 4-5 inches.  I planted them very deep 
this year as I would clematis with cool feet and sunny tops and they are 
doing real good so far.  I sort of rememered that there was something odd 
about the way I planted them years ago and it was planting them abnormally 
deep for the size of the corms.
