I was excited to find this unusual plant in a 3-bulb pack from a vendor at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show. Sadly, only one of them popped up, and did so much later than most references tell me it should have. It’s also a bit weirdly shaped. I’m not sure if this lackluster result is due to my hasty cold-weather planting job, the winter weather or the quality of the bulbs (it’s in fact the second purchase from this particular vendor to result in no-shows), but I’m pretty disappointed. I’m hoping my one surviving specimen will make a full recovery next year. So until next year, I’m assigning this guy a grade of D.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
