I am a bit surprised that my bulb grows in spring here in Denmark - Europe. I chatted with a guy from Italy yesterday. He said that he's Paramongaia flowered in December. A rapid conclusion would be that it adapts very fast compared to other bulb species such as the South African ones.

Another thing that is that nobody knows if you can pollinate the winter growing form with the summer growing form. From a biologic point of view I find this interesting. If you can't it seems as if they're two forms with different genes. I would prefer to grow the winter growing form as it would be our summer growing. But if there's no differences in the

Many others not enjoying the skippy do to. :-)
