I don't fuss much with tender bulbs, but I made an exception for this one, to see if it would live up to the raves. Grown from seed last year, and overwintered in a pot in our garage, it's not posed too much trouble. Probably due to its cramped quarters, combined with lack of fertilizing, it's not made a magnificent display, but I was pleased to see its soft-pink flower appear suddenly one day in early July. So the garage will remain available to this Argentinian lady.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
