I didn't bury these very deep... only about 1-2" deep. And less than an inch of mulch on top. I have this plant on the edge of my daylilies, so not much guardian protection there either. But I can grow things that are zone 6-8 easily & things that are zone 3-5 die for me. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Hi Toni, so they made it? Thumbs up Thumbs up

I wish I could change the title, I'm now z6a!
I dug this clump up last summer, snapped off the old corms and replanted the top ones. This was from a potted plant so I wanted to spread them out some. They seem to like.

Edit: Duh, that's you're title
