For what it is worth, A hygrophilum has been in the garden
for a year or so and is currently producing its first bloom. The
foliage appeared in fall, but was seriously harmed by winter lows
down to -2F. Snow cover helped, but there was little left when spring
came. The foliage regrew and now shows bloom and ID was confirmed
with info from Boyce' 'The Genus Arum'.
This is hardier than the literature would otherwise suggest.
