Answer: Tigridia is a summer blooming plant that, in your growing region, should be lifted and stored over the winter months and then replanted in the spring. You're right, it is not hardy in zone 3 - its rating is zones 8-10. You can plant them in the ground or in containers (for easy lifting later). Plant them as soon as possible so they can flower this summer. Then, when the weather cools in the fall, lift the bulbs and store them in a cool place that remains above freezing during the winter months.
