Dennis S, told Dennis K the above.

	So, curious, I went to the PBS wiki 
http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/…  which 
said they grow in damp areas.

	Oddly there's no pic of P. tuberosa , the most common species 
or any cultivars of the species.

	Anyway	'Very dry" or "damp areas".	Any other success 
stories?		Jim W.
