I will have some more news next spring about how I danfordiae
likes winters cold or otherise. Let you know next spring and maybe
the spring of the next year. Actually, if Ian Efford reports that I
danfordiae grow for him in Ottawa, you can bet they like (or
tolerate) cold winters. Danfordiae start from bulbs which are
neither seeds or plants (?). Looking forward to next spring!
