Polianthes gemniflora is superb for us in the garden, and has been winter hardy down to 6 degrees F so far.  They get a winter dormancy, although it would be anything but dry.  In containers, we do keep them much drier than they grow in the garden.

Jim, Dennis S has seen all these species in the wild, and the info he provides is the best possible around.

One thing is certain: not to give them a dry winter rest is a mistake.
