Hi, Jane
L washingtonianum-

	The bulb(s?) that I have are from the local, low elevation
population; unfortunately, there only seems to be one clone and it does
not self.  I've been looking for a pollen source to get seeds, so far
without luck.  The scales are long, narrow and thin, and curved.  I haven't
tried to scale it, it probably would need a spoon or something to get them
off at the basal plate.  I do have the equipment to tissue culture some
scales, all I lack is the ambition.
	The plant is unique in having no spotting and I'd like to see it
preserved.  How has been the problem.
