    Yes there are two strains, the winter grower I saw in flower in February at the UC Irvine Arboretum.


     I have grown the winter dormant form and also a supposed additonal species, P. superba, that was also a winter dormant plant. What Lee says about these Andean plants (only some of which are alpine) is true, many receive rainfall in late spring lasting to early to late fall. 


     Both Paramongaias were very easy plants in drained mix and the glaucuous pruinose erect foliage was very elegant and attractive on its own. They obviously enjoyed warm conditions and full sun. In the wild they grow in fully exposed slopes in rubble. The bulb is found deeply in the ground.
