Fritillaria in California, was Pacific Horticulture

The discussion of an article on Chile's flora in the handsomely 
produced quarterly magazine Pacific Horticulture impels me to ask 
once more for input on a topic I raised last spring. I'd like to 
write an article for it on growing Fritillaria, but since PH focuses 
on California, I feel inadequately prepared to write this piece. My 
experience growing the plants has been entirely in the Pacific 
Northwest. I asked before what experience our many California members 
had with Fritillaria, but received only two answers, neither of them 
very encouraging. Yet I know (having grown up in California and often 
visiting family there) that many species in addition to the native 
ones should do well in California gardens.

Could more of you who grow Fritillaria species in mild Mediterranean 
climates please write, either to this forum or to me privately, 
discussing your results?

I will not quote any posts or private correspondence without the 
express permission of the writers.

Thank you!
