Biarum in Zone 5/6

Dear Friends,

	Years ago I was sent a couple tubers of the tiny Aroid Biarum 
tenuifolium.  I planted it in a dry rocky raised bed and it has 
flourished and multiplied. Every year I miss the bloom. Just went out 
and found the dry remnants of at least 5 inflorescences.  Drat missed 
it again.

	This is the only species of Biarum I have ever grown or 
tried, but I wonder if anyone else on this list has had success with 
other Biarum species outdoors in 'cool' climates.

	What species have you grown and have any hints on their growth?

		Thanks		Jim W.
