     So glad to have you with us, Jim.  Pacific is our name, but we focus on what goes in the garden; I also depend on the more hardy bulbs outside, as the tender ones won't grow outside my greenhouse.  We are quite varied here in our habitats! Ipheon does well outside here also.   I have had a couple of clumps of a pale blue species, unidentified by vendor, out in the dg soil where gophers and squirrels ignore them.   I plan to move some clumps of Rolf Fieldler outside this spring.

Gardening with bulbs and perennials at 3700 feet in the mountains of 
southern California.    Extreme temperatures in our Mediterranean climate 
from 0 to 110 degrees F.   Average temperatures 15 to 90 degrees F.  A few 
days of snow in winter and a few days of extreme heat in Aug-Sept.  Drought 
conditions seem to be changing to an 'El Nino' year.   (I think that's 
long-hand for USDA zone 7B.)
