These questions have been raised in reference to the bulb exhibition at 
the New York Botanical Garden 's Library's Gallery this fall. Some one 
(not me) found stunning pictures of an oxalis, sparaxis, and babiaba.

 It has been suggested that Babiana sulphurea and Sparaxis be used in 
Bulbs for Bouquets. I have my doubts - don't their flowers quickly close?

And is Oxalis tricolor deer-resistant?

Thanks for your help - I only received their e-mail yesterday, return to 
the Library tomorrow, and haven't found answers to these questions in 
any of the books I looked at last night.

Please note that I am in transition to jglatt@direcway.com as e-mail 

Went to Wave Hill in the Bronx, New York City yesterday. Bitter cold 
with wind sweeping along the Hudson River Valley, and snow-covered 
ground. Brilliant sunshine. Galanthus and Eranthis hiemalis in flower in 
the wild garden, assorted crocus. The true display was in the 
conservatory, where moraea, sparaxis, Freesia alba and more were is 
superb bloom.
