Has anyone grown the plant over years? If so please educate me with your experience.
What is the life cycle of a Naturalised plant?
Do the bulbs survive if left in the ground?
When do they sprout on their own?
What is their normal bloom time?
How long the above ground parts of plant (stem) live after blooming?
Should the bulbs be lifted after the stem dries?
Do the bulbs require chilling, if so for how long?
When should they be re-planted?
I am asking these questions as my previous attempts to grow them, failed. I have now planted about 20 bulbs; these had already sprouted during transit because of their pre-chilling and are now in bloom. I am sure this is not their normal cycle. If I fail again it would be my last attempt.
