I have added another page of Kathleen Sayce's treatment of Legacy Bulbs.


This page covers Colchicum through Erythronium. As I edited it, as 
with other pages, I find some of the plants she has listed as 
lasting, really amazing, as some of them are very challenging for 
many of us to grow. Oh to have Cypripedium naturalizing in your 
garden or adjacent woods.  I think Giorgio was growing Cypripedium. 
Any one else growing this successfully in the ground or aware of 
specific species that are lasting? Perhaps Giorgio could give us an 
update on how his are doing.

Kathleen also mentions Erythronium as naturalizing. I've yet to try 
it in the ground although I have enough of a couple of species now to 
try. Are there any specific species that people have found that once 
planted become persistent in the garden with little care?
