Fritillaria recurva

I ordered seed from Ron Ratko, planted it in 1999. Some came up the 
first year and more the second. For years I babied them without any 
luck so finally planted them in a pot in a raised bed with other 
things and forgot about them. I was therefore surprised when at least 
one of them bloomed in 2009. But if there is still a bulb or two left 
I wouldn't know as that was the only time. But I'm not very 
successful with keeping native Fritillaria going. I do much better 
with other California native genera.
