I. too, have seen dramatic large plantings. One is the woodland Asian garden
in Chanticleer of southeastern Pennsylvania. They don't seem to be digging

I have them planted under mountain laurels for the shade. We had a 3 month

East Nassau, N.Y. - zone 4 - with a few warm fall days for bulb planting. No
