I'm assuming that I. cylcoglossa can take some frost since it is bulbous.
However, can it take the heat and humidity that is indicative of
southeastern U.S. Summers (approximately 100 degrees Far.)?
I'll try looking for this in some of my bulb catalogs.  Anyone on the list
have a source for this one?
