Carefree or Undependable

Among Jim Waddick's undependables, I saw one I somehow forgot: Fritillaria 
imperialis. I cannot, cannot grow it, even in the bulb frame. And I grow 
ALL the closely related species (e.g., F. raddeana, F. eduardii and even F. 
chitralensis), as well as such species of dire reputation as F. alburyana, 
F. arriana, and F. falcata.

I thought the problem was diseased bulbs, but I even killed a seedling 
after it flowered once.
