Hey, David!

I've been growing D. vulgaris outside here in Canby OR (zone 7-8) for nearly 40 years.  Never had a bit of trouble, even during unusually cold (10 deg. F.) weather.  My corms are planted about 6" deep, in sandy soil, and mulched with a couple of inches of leaf litter.  Sprouting time and sprout hardiness are in line with the preceding responses.

Let us know how they fare.

David,

My experience here in NW Arkansas is that D. vulgaris comes up in mid-February most years, which is far earlier than I originally expected, and doesn't suffer any leaf damage above 20-22 F. The leaves do wilt in hard freezes but quickly recover when it warms up.

During the up and down temperatures, normal for this season in Fort Worth, one of my Dracunculis vulgaris has sprouted.  Tonight it is supposed to get below freezing again, which is no problem for my Arums (as long as it stays above 20 degrees F), but is this a problem for D. vulgaris???

Appreciate hearing of any experiences with this.
