Your mentioning of A. belladonna gave me an idea for an interesting case
study. If we could record the first blooming time of A. belladonna from
southern CA up to Washington of outdoor bulbs for several years in a row, we
could correlate it with various meteorological factors and hopefully come up
with some data on what causes these bulbs to break dormancy.

To start this, I have created a form that people can fill in. They can also
write in to the group or privately to me as well. Here is the form:…

Everyone, if you grow this species, please keep an eye out for when you
notice the buds break the ground and when the first flower opens. Thanks!
