Hi Uli,

I agree with all that have already commented on this. Calochortus are very
long lived and should do very well for you.  For me here in the wet Pacific
Northwest of the US I am following advice that Mary Sue Itner gave some
time back to delay planting until January due to our wetter conditions.  I
have seed from several species I had intended to plant last year, but as we
had an extremely wet winter, the wettest on record, I held off and will be
planting them next month.
