One question - do the the cultivars differ in bulb size or shape? Last autumn I bought a package of Ipheions labelled with white flowers picture (no name - Alberto Castillo??) and the bulbs were of surprisingly large size comparing to regular I.uniflorum bought some years ago. Bulb shape was about the same. Do you confirm or just the regular bulbs were young and small??

Alberto, by the way - "your" bulbs one can buy at a small vegetable/friut market in a small town in Poland. They have spread all over the world.
