Why do mine come up, but never bloom. this is the third year



Hi Jerrie, don't have direct experience with Frittalaria...but was reminded of problems with bulbs that did not flower because they had been planted too deep. perhaps you should wait til they die down and dig them up... google to find out the ideal depth to plant and replant with a little bonemeal added to the soil. Good luck.

I had some trouble with them too. Expensive bulb, flowered first year and then I couldn't even find the bulb the next year, but then I have very active squirrels who like to rearrange all my bulbs.... A real disappointment for you.
