I don't think rodents eat Eucomis bulbs. I had a gopher in the bed where I 
have them a few years ago, and it ate all the lily bulbs but didn't bother 
the Eucomis. Then one of my Malamutes caught it -- before my eyes! -- and 
ate it up. While I cheered.

Chiltern's new seed catalog also lists Eucomis hybrids and mentions that 
the seed comes from a large specialist collection, I assume in England. I 
think I'll order some -- I'd like to get more of the good-looking leaf forms.
