Dear Ellen and all,
	I used to grow this species outdoors when I lived in the 
central city. The bulbs came from a standard commercial (?) source, 
probably Dutch. The bulbs were planted near a side walk which, 
combined with the heat of the city, might have contributed to its 
hardiness. It bloomed there and multiplied until we left.
	Should be hardy enough for Jim S., too.

		Best	Jim W.

We just scraped past 60-80 mile winds overnight and a few scattered 
tornados, but the wind did take down an old pear tree, our only loss. 
But everything looks like it has been through the big blow. !
