These corms were purchased last Spring. They were only 1" diameter but everyone bloomed ~ on digging them up this Fall the corms are easily 3" diameter and there are a b'zillion bulblets.

Next year they will get a more prominent place in the garden.
They were planted too far away to enjoy them unless you cut them and brought them inside.
