These are outdoors on a North facing slope approx 2.5 miles inland from the 
receiving no direct sun all winter while dormant and only part sun 
spring-fall. They seem to do well even with the winter rains, although I 
suspect the slope location provides excellent drainage despite the clay 
soil. From two small bulbs in pots purchased about 7 years ago ... in the 
ground they have produced good sized clumps of perhaps 15-25 bulbs. No 
fertilizer and only periodic summer watering maybe every 3-4 weeks seems to 
keep them happy. I want to split up the clumps but perhaps I should have 
done that while still dormant? Any advice on these would be greatly 

San Diego ... zone 10, maybe 11
