Hi Gang, I don't think Beschorneria qualify as geophytes, but I grow some among my bulbs and find they fit right in as long as they have good drainage. Sometimes, Poltianthes (a relative) are accorded geophyte status. Anyway, I wonder if folks out there have a few seeds of hardy Beschorneria types (hybrids are fine), or know where to order such seeds. A few years ago I got some seeds from Peckerwood Garden, but I've never seen seed offered again. However, I did get some from a garden email friend in New Zealand. Cordially, Conroe Joe (Hot and humid in Conroe, more rain, the Crinum seem to love this weather as long as they don't get leaf spots).
