Ten years ago the price for a Tecophillea corm, in the UK, was £7.00. The
price has been sreadily dropping and last year I saw it on Alpine Garden
Society events Trade stands for £4.00. The plant is becoming more widely
grown and the rarity value is dropping whether or not anyone is
'micropropping' it.
I doubt it is hardy at Zone 7 but it can withstand the corm freezing (I
don't reccomend this)
