Peg Dabagh was my godfather's wife. I planted some of the Peg Dabagh bulbs near St. Helena, in the early 1960s. They are untended, ever, and rely on natural rain and sun to survive. They are still blooming their heads off, after all these years. Thought you might like to know. Elise Kroeber -- WikiGuest - 25 Dec 201.
