The ones I planted had mostly blue on the packet and some white or white mixed. No yellow at all but oh well I like them. So far I'd say the yellow ones are the biggest. Only 7 or so actually came up so far of 200. I've found a few that were dug up some how and were covered in mold. I assume they become susceptible to disease if they're in the wrong soil or something.

They're pretty bullet-proof, but if the frost heaves them up and they're on the surface all winter they will die.  They're in the lily family, and have special roots that can actually pull them down further into the soil (during the growing season).

Ann, see, I love your knowledge, I can learn so much from little things from you.  Beautiful day. Cindi
