Yippee - Perennial Hippis in z7
I'm happy to report that it looks like hippis just might be perennial in Zone 7! I took a chance and left out some of my Red Lions and those Breck's "Hardy" (Sonatini) bulbs last winter with a good covering of mulch/leaves, and sure enough they've come back and are blooming!
I'm so excited about this because, mostly, it means I have someplace new to stash a bunch of the bulbs and seedlings that I've run out of room for elsewhere. Looks like I might not have to move to Fla. after all, Cindee.
(Josh, guess what I found in the garden too? Looks like that pink/white "hardy" came back that you were interested in. Look to the right of the tall lilies. Maybe it just didn't bloom last year. A bulblet will have your name on it this summer ;-) )
