Will these bulbs grow in my hot climate?

khabbab(10b)May 10, 2013

Hi,

I just received following bulbs from some friends in UK. Can some one tell me if they will grow good in my hot climate. I am in winter hardiness zone 10b (winter is short and mild) and my summers are very hot and dry from May-June (constant temps of 40-45C) and humid hot months from July-August (monsoon). Should i wait and plant them in fall (the usual time we plant most bulbs) or plant them right away?

1- Galtonia candicans
2- Crocosmia emily mckenzie
3- Nerine alba
4- TRITELEIA laxa corrina

Regards,
Khabbab

I would wait and plant in the fall. I see no reason why they would not do well, assuming you have water available. Al

In my Zone 8 garden, Galtonia and Crocosmia are planted in spring. I have grown both. Galtonia didn't do too well. My climate is very hot and very humid. They didn't like it. The Crocosmia do well with afternoon shade. Triteleia declined and disappeared after a few years. Your climate zone is even hotter. You won't know until you try them.
