Hi Fred,

How cold is cold, and how do you know they didn't survive?  Did you dig
down, or are you inferring based on their failure to reappear this spring?
I'm in NC, and most of my G. dalenii, and the hybrids thereof, are only now
breaking the surface.  In a colder climate, I'd expect them still to be
underground.  Some clones are even later to break dormancy. The
'Halloweenie' clone sold by Plant Delights doesn't appear in my garden
until sometime in summer and it flowers about three months after the other
plants--are your plants perhaps a late-emerging form?

North Carolina, Zone 7
