They would bloom in the Gaylordsville Connecticut (5a) garden up against a
South facing stone wallt (old barn foundation) with some late season
temporary frost protection.  The bulbs themselves were perfectly hardy.in
the well drained soil.

They bloom here in North Carolina (8a) but I offer no  protection so some
of the buds will get nipped by frost.

Potted, they were easy in a frost free greenhouse kept under the bench
during winter.

Labels long lost, these were from higher altitude seed.
