Why insist

Dear all,
 This remark of Mary Sue struck me, as it is  also my philosophy "if a plant 
 (genus or species)  does not thrive in your garde, don't insist.  The 
choice is  so enormous; candidats are queing up.
For example: after having tried 10  species of Fritiliaria only F raddeana 
is still  hanging on. My gardening environment is definitely suited for 
M├ęditerranean and Cape bulbs. Allthough for commercial reasons I have to 
grow  some species from other mediterranean climat areas.

Kind greetings

Cyclamen, Crocus,  Amarine, Tulbaghia, Nerine, Oxalis

From: Mary Sue Ittner I've mostly given up trying to grow Fritillaria since 
I don't have 
continuing success with this genus even though I have gotten some 
species to bloom from seed. So many other things are so much more 
reliable for me. I have enough success that I don't need to succeed 
with everything.
