Hi Steve!

I grow all of these, and they should do just great for you planted at the
recommended depth in well drained soil with a sunny exposure. They
tolerate, rather than require, the cold winter temperatures here.
Danfordiae and Reticulata are absolutely the first things to bloom here
each year (in early March, if the snow melts that soon). 
> PPS. How do you pronounce Danfordiae.

First snow on the garden yesterday; overnight low temperature of 24F -
Farewell, rebloom!
