Dear All,

I'd like to get some cultural tips on the above mentioned species.
With F. imperialis i had no luck keeping them longer than 1-2 years, they
flower well the first year if planted early as possible, but eventually
they die out. They just not emerging next year. When i dud up the place the
bulbs disappear.
With F. persica the bulbs grow for many years, but even with a well sized
bulb they send up shoots with aborted buds, but in the first year they
flower well, so i think the bulb needs a special treatment not to abort the
Do they need a special soil?

Thank you.
