We have grown Pancratium foetidum outdoors for 20 years. It receives full west sun from noon until sunset and is key very dry. It flowers reliably every year.  Our coldest temp since 2000 is 7 degree F (-14c).

Subject: [pbs] Pancratium foetidum

For several years I have been growing Pancratium foetidum in Italy,
USDA 8b, in open ground, loose clay soil and full sun. Each autumn
the plant produces beautiful foliage, does not suffer from low
temperatures (-3 ° C), but has never bloomed. On the contrary, I have
seen flowering plants grown in rather small pots. Can anyone explain
to me the reason for the non-flowering? Thank you.
