Dear Arnold;
	2 falls ago I planted E. bicolor outdoors and shallowly. I 
thought they had turned to mush that spring, but foliage slowly 
	This spring foliage came up strongly so I suspect they have 
pulled themselves down and will hopefully bloom this fall. This in a 
raised bed with NO WINTER PROTECTION.

	So my suggestion for your mild climate is to try a few more 
outdoors and plant them deeply as Jane suggested.
