Julie,

Julie they need stratification. Sometimes can take a year or more for them to germ, and another 2 to 4 years to bloom. Is a lobor of love for sure! :)

I started some outside this fall, only one of them germinated this spring, I'm going to leave the others in their flat for another winter and see what comes up next spring. I was just elated that one of them germinated so quickly.

Good luck!
Jody
