Not in this corner. I've planted many, many bulbs of this, in a 
variety of different locations in my garden, but only in one spot 
have they done at all well -- and even there they don't *thrive*. 
Most of the others simply disappeared after a while. Why that one 
spot works and other don't, I do not know. I consider it a 
temperamental and troublesome plant.
