Pancratium maritimum

Thank you for assuming that I'm a reasonable person, Adam. 

I have two cold frames which I think of as my "protected" cold frames. In
these I grow plants not likely to survive prolonged freezes. One frame is
for plants which do not tolerate summer water, the other is for plants which
tolerate summer water. The Pancratium went into the summer dry frame; I
thought that was appropriate for a Mediterranean climate plant. When those
plants were obtained as dry, rootless bulbs, the summer dry frame was
managed as a very dry frame - obviously it was too dry for the newly planted
Pancratium. I think they never had a chance to form a root system.
