Hi Cathy et al:
                        Yes, the stolons cut indicate the bulbs may be true 
Rolf Fiedler, which is incidentally a species different than uniflorum. Now 
that these bulbs are mass produced do look for streakings in their flowers 
which will indicate the presence of virus. Year ago, I had to destroy my 
bulbs of Wisley Blue and Froyle Mill from England as they were virused.
                         Bulbs of RF and uniflorum have perennial roots and 
must not be overdried while dormant  in summer or they will perform poorly. 
In the wild they receive year round rains although of course in summer the 
soil moisture is only slight.
