Some discussion of Dodecatheon as a bulb species, or as geophyte.  For interest, here are some production images of Dodecathion hendersonii as harvested and graded. 

small offsets that seem to appear at base of the crown. We use these as transplants for next crop.

We have found that offsets planted in the fall will continue to grow immediately then going dormant, often the larger offsets achieving enough growth will bloom the next spring.
