Thanks Janey!... Yes, Amy, it has a wonderful scent... and the corms are quite reasonable... and they increase every season.

Lovely photo, Lori. I'm waiting for mine to flower! They aren't hardy here, so rather than have to dig them up each year and store them, I treat them as annuals and buy new ones. Do I gather that they are hardy for you, Lori?

My mistake...I wanted to add this photo to my garden list..but took it from my files rather than the goY files!! and as a result I've duplicated a picture... I have this pic a few pages back in my photos... I dig them up in the fall, Spritzhenry. they are very prolific... I have trebled the number of corms in two seasons...I had more than I had space for... so I'm going to try an experiment ...I'm going to pot up the extras and try to get them to bloom over winter!... I may not succeed in getting anything from them but I have extras and it's worth a try, I think.

Mine never did flower, Lori, so I will be digging them up tomorrow. ;-(

Maybe next year!

oh sorry to hear that! I've dug mine and put them away for winter...they produce so many cormlets that I could have a whole acre of these next year if I had the backbone to plant them!! I'm not aging gracefully I'm afraid...keep trying to do the stuff I took for granted, like dig...and coming up lame or in traction!! (slight exaggeration) Don't give up on them, please Spritz... they really are no care at all!
