last year I split up large clumps of montbretia to make smaller clumps & spread them round the garden in a variety of places----full sun, shade & sun, shady areas etc.  The one plant that hasnt ben moved is flowering, but no signs of flowers on any of the others.

Any ideas out there??

Have heard that bulbs/corms need to be planted at least 3 inches deep---is this correct & could it possibly affect the flowering??

hello, don't know about the depth of planting but when i split and dug up quite a few clumps of these i didn't really plant them at all. managed to take some of the earth as well and basically i just heeled them down so they wouldn't topple over, now they've filled a whole section behind a wall at the bottom of the garden and always flower. they're extremely hardy and almost weedlike where i live.

they're the orange flowered variety and don't know the name as they were here when we moved here 12 years ago. 

they do better in full sun as well, hope this helps
