Leaves appear and wither away before flower cluster erupts. Fibrous rootstock often connects a cluster of bulbs. Plant habit is to form colonies on rich moist soils of woodlands, especially bottom land areas.

Seeds failed to show this spring. I'm told it can take two years, so I'm hopeful for next year. I'm also putting up a fence and sowing a few more seeds this July so maybe next spring!

Got the area under the maple tree all set up with drip irrigation. Mixed in composted manure and spread the seeds. Covered with hay first and then later in October I added maple leaves from my yard. Here's hoping they sprout in the spring!
