I bought six bulbs of 'Romance' many years ago, and today they have increased to more than 30. Unfortunately, when digging and replanting a few years back I mixed (unknowingly) a few of these with a different cultivar. Although they grow beautifully together, It will be a real effort to separate them again, since each stem will require a tag (or tape) to identify it. They are a very attractive flower; and growth and bloom are outstanding, with no apparent pest or disease problems. As I post they are in full bloom. The trumpets open as a peach/apricot color, and turn pink over a day or two. Nice!
