Dear Dell: 
               I struggled to send this message yesterday but to no avail. Both Zephyranthes Bangkok Yellow and ex Pamillas are of the greates interest wether in th hands of Lee Poulsen or mine as with a couple of bulbs we can grow virus free stock through seed production. I imagine they are all gone by now. Reginae if true would also be of interest. All of reginae received from several sources invariably turned out into primulina. Since this people collect in Mexico it OUGHT to be the real thing. Whatever, all material otherwise difficult to find  true from other sources.
