In regions warmer than Zone 8, bulbs will need a cold treatment (40° to 45°F for 8 to 10 weeks). Propagation: For more bulbs, lift plants in summer and remove the offsets (small lateral bulblets). In fall, replant the bulbs and offsets and fertilize with low-nitrogen fertilizer. Problems: Bulb and root rot, gray mold, slugs, snails, aphids, nematodes, voles. Overview Height 1 ft. to 3 ft.
