In this case frostier is probably better.  Go for it!  The bulbs are so
inexpensive that even if they bloomed just once, it would be worth it.
They like lean, sandy soils and a bit of lime, so your area should be
ideal.  I would wait until at least November to plant the bulbs, so a
cooler period would be available for their earlier development.  You need
to contact this man in Gainesville and find out exactly how he does it.
