I have some lazica (of both species actually) at home now that has not yet tried to flower, so hopefully will later this month or next. It has been a long cold winter. In other years this plant, against a south wall, has started in November, rested over mid winter and then restarted through until March/April. So here in a mild winter it is a long flowering season, in a cold winter a short season. Brian Whyer, Buckinghamshire, England, zone ~8? Eranthis hyemalis going over, E. cilicius just opening. Daffodils sometime in the future.
