I purchased bulbs from Costco and this plant (kniphofia, Alcazar) was in the bag with Liatris and Echinacea. The Alcazar did not ever come up. I watered twice a week as it is hot and dry here in Rosenberg Texas where I live. Does anyone have any thoughts as to why the Alcazar never came up? The Liatris and the Echinacea both came up beautifully and I've enjoyed them both, but can't figure out what went wrong with the Alcazar.
