Hi Gang, If you follow the link below, you can find some photos I put up on the Texas Garden Web Forum to advertize a talk on Crinum. The talk will be about plants that do well along the Gulf Coast. Crinum don't like it here very much but some do very well. With care some of the other species can be grown. Dave L. has written a good article in this regard, see the second link.

That is not in the works, but the PowerPoint presentation can be mailed out to Bulb or Garden clubs, etc. Just write to me off list and I'll see what can be arranged. Cordially, Joe Hot, hot, hot today in Conroe. I'm watering everything and the plants want more water.
