A local garden friend here asks if we can grow "Blue-Eyed Tulip" here.

On the PBS wiki the photos are from two gardeners in cold climates.
I am wondering if anyone has had good results growing this in a climate
like mine, approximately USDA zone 10a with a bit of occasional light
frost. I am sure it would bloom the first year but I suspect then it would
never bloom again, lacking winter chill. The Tulipa saxatilis (or bakerii)
'Lilac Wonder' is the only tulip I have grown well here. That one
multiplies and thrives without any special care other than protection from

Santa Barbara, California
where I really cannot complain about the climate other than not growing
Tulipa well
