Dear Gene,

Check out this post from Diana Chapman from the past about the challenges 
getting Hesperocallis to come up after the first year. There have been many 
posts from people who were frustrated trying to grow this bulb in the lists 
I've participated in since 1997. I can't recall anyone ever saying they got 
one in cultivation to flower, but if someone has, please speak up. I seem 
to recall a suggestion of keeping them growing that first year and not 
letting them grow dormant, but I don't know if that translated into final 
Diana's post, don't be fooled by the subject…
