My first seeds came from plants at the Huntington. The first year they germinate, they only put down a root and bulb, then the next year vegetative growth. One flowered in 2 years with constant moisture outside in the garden in a pot. I was surprised it was so quick. The others took 2 to 3 more years. They have been flowering and seeding successfully ever since. I have too many so I cut off the flowers when they are done blooming. 
They are susceptible to Stagnospora so I try to keep them away from the Hippies but occasionally I notice some discoloring when they are going dormant.
