Ornithogalum saundersiae

I am in the Chicago area and keep mine in pots to go dormant in the greenhouse in the winter.  It gets way too cold here to keep them in the ground.  When dealing with plants whose winter hardiness is questionable and who are prolific multipliers (as is this one), I also experiment with leaving a couple in the ground while taking in the rest as insurance.  In any case, I will probably be sending more to the BX in the spring as they continue to multiply.  These were originally a gift to me by a friend moving from a townhouse to an apartment in Chicago.  The gift that keeps on giving.

> Does anyone have any experience growing them in the Southeast, particularly in Zone 7?? I can dig the bulbs and toss them in the greenhouse for the winter if necessary, but leaving them would surely be more convenient!? If no one knows, I'll leave one out and dig one and report next year!
