**I'm rather overwhelmed by the amount of information offered on the pbs list.
Are there any other bulb books listers would recommend?
I put The Color Encyclopedia of Cape Bulbs on my wish list.
Now to win the lottery.

The only catalog I have on hand to use as reference is last year's 
'Brent and Becky's Bulbs', and I do an occasional google search.
I am also entranced by the C. chrysanthus 'Prins Claus' pictured today.
All the photos, all of them, have been mind boggling.

Too many plants to learn, too little time to grow them.
