I planted the bulbs as instructed, after soaking, but, unfortunately, none have come up. Hopefully, they may grow next Spring.

These little chaps were planted among a lot of penstemon and held their own admirably last spring. I am hoping for even more flowers next year now that they have had time to 'settle in'.
