Ina, they come from a zone 8 in the wild, but you can grow them by giving them afternoon shade while in growth and keeping them in pots when dry dormant ( that is, full sun until say 2 p. m. and from then on NO direct sunshine). The first summer is the most critical when the tiny corms can be easily dessicated by heat. From then on they are comparatively not difficult. The corms bury themselves deep.
