Ernie, You mention Ledebouria cooperi as being winter-hardy? What zone are you in and how cold do your winters get? I'd like to try putting it in the rock garden but haven't heard too many people talk about it.

Winter hardy gladioli galtonia, Ledebouria cooperi, Crocosmias, Dieramas, Galtonia, Crinum bulbispermum (and Super Ellen and x powelli), and Agapanthus are all up among others and I still wait for Eucomis, which is always the last thing to emerge. Also seeing growth just starting on well protected (wood chip mulch) Erythrina zeyheri.
