Re: SPEC: Belamcanda chinensis

B. chinensis, "Candy Lilies" and Pardanthopsis dichotoma will all bloom the
first year from seed if started early and given good conditions.  P.
dichotoma in abundant bloom now in my garden.  Last evening I counted over
50 blooms on four stalks, each over 5' tall.  No problems with drought for
this plant.

PS--half-inch of rain here last night (much much more to our north and
west) and the hope for more today and tonight.
