Welcome Norman,

If you are ever able to get some seed of Cyrtanthus herrei, I, for one,
would love to get a hold of some.

Best wishes,

Dell Sherk, NE USA

Good evening

My name is Norman Featherstone and I live in Nababeep, a village in
Namaqualand, South Africa.
Due to my involvement in tourism as a tour guide I have become very
interested in the amazing variety of plants to be found in this wonderful
region. It seems as though every time I visit an area within Namaqualand I
come across something unusual.
My main interest is succulents but having seen the wide variety of bulb
plants to be found - we have identified amongst others a small and large
colony of Cyrtanthus herrei, a liliale. We attempt to keep track of as many
colonies of Gethyllis grandiflora and namaquensis as possible.

Kind regards
Norman Featherstone
