What are the pros? Vigorous to a fault
What are the cons? Nothing
I planted seeds in a rail planter with mixture of compost and manure on 8/11. I companion planted with some onions-why not? Most emerged but a squirrel decided to bury acorns in the planter and displaced many of the seedlings. I replanted as many as I could. 6 have survived. That being said, those 6 have thrived! I do occasionally feed with water soluble fertilizer but pretty sparingly. The planter does not receive much direct sun even in winter but this variety has continued to thrive despite it. They bulb readily and grow vigorously. They have survived temperatures as low as 20 and rebounded nicely. In fact, they barely respond to 24 degrees with ice. Heavy rain and multiple consecutive days of steady rain haven't negatively affected them at all. I usually feed after large rain episodes to replenish nutrients I feel may be leached out. Other than that they are pretty much neglected. I harvested one today the 29th. It's about 2.5" in diameter with large healthy leaves.
