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.
