(Near Lincoln UK) on Dec 2, 2011 10:10 AM concerning plant:
This is a cross between E. californicum 'White Beauty' × E. tuolumnense.
I bought it in a pot with three small bulbs about 12 years ago, I planted them deep at the base of an east facing bank in semi-shade. It took many years for the two which survived to bulk up, in 2010 I had a good display but in 2011 they didn't do well. Perhaps the harsh 2010/11 winter then very dry year didn't suit them, or maybe the bulbs have split. I have noticed over the years they scarcely show in some years but they make a great show when they do.
