Resprouting Ornithogalum

Hi Andrew,

Our three year old bulbs have returned each spring, blooming right now. Our
soil is heavy clay with tree trimmings mulch. They might be getting a little
summer water from a dripper nearby. Full sun next to a stone patio that
radiates heat. We had little rainfall this winter - about 6" total, less
than half of normal. All this info is anecdotal since we don't grow lots of
them. Hope it helps.

Here's what should be a trivial question - how do you get the commercial
Ornithogalums to bloom a second year, or even to get them to quit dormancy?
Several of my friends have found similar difficulties. Thanks
