yellow/pink Polianthes

Did anybody else buy those yellow or pink Polianthes that are new to the 
market?  I bought some from Brent & Becky's Bulbs but they didn't bloom 
this season.  I remembered to dig them up today before the sun went 
down, to bring them inside for winter.  Lo & behold one of them had a 
bloom stem about 12 inches high.  Everything above ground had been 
killed by the freezing weather we've had an night... but there was 
definitely a bloom stalk that would have flowered if the temps had 
stayed warm enough.   But maybe even more exciting is all the new bulbs 
they created... I planted three big bulbs in spring, and six months 
later  I've dug up 3 big bulbs with a multitude of smaller bulbs all the 
way around each one.  Next year should be glorious!  :-)

single digits (Fahrenheit) later this week)
