Thank you, Gene,

It seems I either have a shortage of winter chill or summer heat, both of
which they would receive in the San Gabriel and San Bernardino Mountains
where she grew up.  I have pictures of my wife in the snow in her childhood
but do not know much of the heat there.  Our one trip there together was in
the early summer, so I did not get a feel for the full summer heat there.

The one time ours bloomed they were lovely, and obviously the cat liked
them as well.  I really want to continue to grow them in her memory, so
will work on the conditions I need to help them thrive.

Thank you all,
