Thank you all for the advice. This gives me some hope that they have still to wake up.

Warm Regards and Thanks,
Fred

All the dalenii I grow appear to be hardy enough in Upstate NY, zone 6-ish...  I lift most of the bulbs, just in case, but the ones I have allowed to stay planted have come back each year now for four years.  They are, however, quite late in appearing.  I don't expect to see them before mid-May/early June.
