Dear PBSers,

	These have proven totally worthless in Kansas City. A few will winter over a year or two, most not at all. Instead I have had an expanding clump of the wonderful rich blue Ixiolirion tataricum in bloom for the last few days. I admit I had to spread and remove some ‘natives’ (i.e.weeds) i did find them in glorious bloom. Although these should be no-brainers for my climate, I have found them happy in only one location : a west facing slope. I do enjoy them and can console myself that I can grow these gorgeous bulbs.

	See them at 		http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/… <http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/index.php/…>					Best		Jim W.
