Gardeners' Notes:

Positive JonthanJ On Mar 27, 2013, JonthanJ from Logansport, IN wrote:

While the gaudy or festive coloring may be a bit difficult for some people, this variety displays extraordinary vigor and a distinctive slightly twisted flower shape. In my little greenhouse in the first quarter of 2013, a bulb I had bought on close out late in 2011 and grown on over the summer of 2012 delivered a dozen blossoms-5 on one scape and 7 on the other. I had been expecting a pair of sixes. At the end of March, it is pushing out four 3" wide leaves and pushing up leaves on four offsets as well.

Happily growing in Miami, either potted or in the ground. Mine are potted.
