I bought Thalia, Tresamble and Silk Shot from a top Dave's Garden company from which I have bought splendid daffs. Since all my other division daffodils from this company have flourished, I wonder whether triandrus daffs have a problem in my zone, which is 5a.

I later received a John Scheepers catalog which described the zone for ths plant as 5c. I had not known this zone existed, and this may explain the problem.
