Dear Kevin,

Reporting from coastal Northern California which is different from Southern 
California of course as we get more rainfall and probably cooler 
temperatures, but this species is super easy for me in containers kept dry, 
but moved to the shade in summer. No baking here. Many pots have been 
blooming for awhile and others are starting into bloom. Mine multiply 
rapidly in the pots, almost double every year so I repot them frequently 
and always have pots in bloom to give to friends every year. Perhaps they 
need to be planted deeper or divided or planted in a deeper container?

I obtained mine originally from Bill Dijk in New Zealand and they needed a 
year or two to change hemispheres, but since then have bloomed reliably and 
allowed me to share with many others. It's great fun to be able to give 
people a blooming Narcissus at this time of the year as it is so unexpected.

Mary Sue
