That is interesting and brings home how subjective hot and cold are.  
When we first came to New Zealand from Holland, many years ago, in 
winter we wore summer clothes with a cardi.  Now I shiver along with the 
bestof them. In winter clothes.

And plants respond to different temperatures even more so than warm 
blooded creatures.

That is why I also mentioned it is the difference in temperature from 
night to day which would affect Lachenalias.  I have about 6 varieties 
growing now.
