Narcissus bulbocodium in Northern gardens

I tried the 'Oregon Strain' without much success.  Only one is coming up this fall, but I haven't checked this week.  I was hoping for better.  Down the hill, towards Ithaca, in the local banana belt, they grow it will.

Dear PBS friends,

	I have tried and never succeeded with Narc. bulbocodium in my outdoor gardens 
here in Kansas City MO - Zone 5/6. This includes the widely sold ‘Golden Bells’ 
and other sources. I just got a few bulbs of Steve Vinisky’s Cherry Creek 
Daffodils ‘Oregon Strain’ and hope for better.

	Has any one tried this ‘Oregon Strain’ in colder climates. What success? 	I 
have planted a few outdoors in a slightly raised bed and others in a pot for the 
cool GH where I know they do quite well.

	Is ‘Oregon Strain’ any hardier?		Thanks for your experiences.		Jim W.
