Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still hasn't bloomed I bought three bulbs last year and planted them in fresh soil at once. They sprouted and grew but did not bloom. This year, new foliage came up in spring; it is late summer and I now once again have a thick clump of leaves, but no sign of bloom. Seems like they ought to perform in this climate (Austin, Texas). Very disappointing so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How about five stars? Last year I planted 3 bulbs, one came up, wilted and died. This year, however, I have five growing... yay!! I find if you have patience wonderful things happen. Or, as my sister says, "The harvest is hers in due season." All my flowering bulbs, trees and shrubs didn't flower until the second year. Don't give up:)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't grow! I planted these bulbs in late April/early May along with about 10 bulbs from other lilllies, cannas, etc. All of the bulbs grew except these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No growth I planted exactly as indicated but nothing grew or sprouted. I was disappointed as they would have been beautiful if they grew.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed These look so pretty in the picture but mine never bloomed either. I planted them in my garden and nothing ever happened.
