Dear all;
	J. P. Baumgardt was an inspiration for a lot of local 
gardens; Great book too. I've grown mixed and color selections of 
Tigridia and they are either wimps or huge and much too gaudy, but 
never winter over for me.
	I admit I haven't really given their best spot, but seems the 
commercial bulbs are pretty uneven in quality.
