I've never been able to keep this one growing long enough to bloom in the 
parts of California where I have lived. I've tried seed and bulbs. I have 
concluded since Brodiaea, Dichelostemma, and Triteleia species are all 
really easy for me to grow and have blue flowers, that I'd have more luck 
expanding those species in my collection. Like Jane I expected having a dry 
summer was not enough and it may not be cold enough here or perhaps its too 
wet in winter. So Kelly's post is interesting that someone in Oregon has 
success. Still I do better with bulbs from climates similar to mine in 
California than those from China.
