I live in Canby, OR, USA (zone 7 something). Our normal winter temperatures go below freezing and sometimes into the teens and somewhat rarely down into the single digits, all with a great deal of rain. I have grown D. vulgaris for over 20 years outside with no protection at a depth of about 4"-6". I was surprised at how well it grew. One winter the temperature fell to just above zero F. for about a week. I don't know if this is unusual or not because it's the only one I've ever grown. It emerges in March-April, flowers in June-July and goes dormant in October-November.

I live in zone 7a, so I don't risk leaving
Dracunculus vulgaris (which has similar requirements as Helicodiceros
so I cultivate it at home. It is dormant through
all the summer and autumn, it wakes up in December, blooms in February and soon
after it goes dormant again. Here's my page:

requierements for Helicodiceros
I am certainly no expert when it comes to
this plant, but I do have a few in pots, so I will share what I
know! Here in Tennessee, USA, they start growing in December and
die back in hot weather, but I think they last until June or July.
pots were under a potting bench, getting almost no light and only a
little water dripping from the pots above. I pull them out when I
notice them starting to grow.
Mine have never bloomed,
They are in a greenhouse that gets down to about 50F (10C)
at night an from 50-100F during the day (depending on outside
temperature and sun).

Temperature requierements for Helicodiceros

from the temperatures and seasonal rainfall on
Sardinia I guess that Helocodiceros grows from late Sebtember to April
or May with the maximum of rainfall in November and December and
temperatures down to 8 °C (46 °F) in December to February.
I would like to know, wether the low
temperatures in the growing season are neccessary or if Helicodiceros
could be grown (and flower) at higher temperatures as well.
Looking forward to any comment,
