The  cormlets can be so prolific that sorting them out is not worthwhile
just plant and they can get on with it.

The most tender in my experiance is Dichelostemma voubile and D capitata
with temperature limits of around 5 F when planted deep in sand, a large
pot of B crocea was serverly damaged at these temperatures  or slightly
lower (0F), (wet and out of doors) and I had only one flower stem last year
as a result, -the pot was not fully plunged.
