My Sternbergia are planted in a raised edging.  So they are well 
drained, a vital fact to Sternbergias.  It is mild here, equivalent to 
Zone 10a, and they flower their little hearts out every autumn.  Such a 
cheery sight on a dull, dark day.  They get quite a bit of sun, but 
certainly not all day.

Incidentally, it was an accidental planting, I knew nothing about these
