Lucifer has been a bit disappointing for the last two years or so. It lies all over the place, rarely standing upright, and does not show to its known effect. I have dug up the corms, intending to replant them deeper in the hope that this will encourage them to stand tall. In everything I read, it says “3-5 inches deep”. So, would planting them deeper encourage upright habit? If not, what to do…? Thanks.
