This is the thrid time blooming this one. Normally it flowers in April but this year it didn't want to stay dormant. I overwinter it in the basement since it is not hardy in my zone 5b.

a great pict. of lovely flowers Todd. 10 years ago those were sold together with tulip bulbs and similar in garden centers, but today I am no more able to find them around here. Jean

Biothanasis, mine loose it's leaves in October-November. I leave them cold and on the dry side for the winter but I guess it wasn't cold enough so they started 2 months early. They may loose their leaves by September this year!
