I have been planting reticulatas for the past month.  The earlier ones I
planted have broken the ground with a small nub about a half inch high.
They seem to have stopped above ground growth at this height.  Last year
I remembered my reticulatas sending up bloom and foilage at the same
time with the foilage getting much taller after the bloom was gone.

Hope this helps.
