Mediterranean climates

Hello, Alberto,

To answer the question of whether or not bulbs from Mediterranean climates naturalize in Central Texas, you'll have to give me several more years in which to reply!  I do know that Roman hyacinths have lasted here in yards at least since 1900, and I think very rarely they come from seed.  Rhodophiala bifida from Argentina (evidently imported by the German-Texas horticulturist Oberwetter) are seen in many older yards and abandoned gardens.  The common grape hyacinth (often inhabiting drier lawns or open places) and Leucojum aestivum are even older inhabitants of gardens in Central Texas.

Hi Cynthia:
           The question would be: Do bulbs from Mediterranean climates 
naturalize in your area? In other words, do they reappear every year without 
being lifted?
