Keeping my fingers crossed for hardiness. No success on first attempt, but I keep on trying until my seed stores are depleted. The seedlings from 2012 were still around in the form of elongated burgundy bulbs in spring of 2013; no signs of growth starting by late April, but I hope to have a positive update later in spring.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
