Hi Chuck,


First, I hope I have your correct email address; I lost some email messages and am "groping" for some addresses.  


Second, thanks so much for the plant that you sent to me.  I will do my best to keep it alive and healthy.  I'm not worried about it now, or for winter.  I just wonder about next summer (just because of my other experiences with fuchsias).  


I will keep the plant protected from too-much cold, and will keep it with some (of the very few plants) that I protect when temperatures threaten to go below 28 F.  


The leaves are very attractive, sort of fuzzy white, and gray too, but mostly green.  


Thanks so much.

P.S.  Can you use any C. bulbispermum Jumbo seedlings, or perhaps a 1-year-old seedling from Marcelle's garden (either C. scabrum-type or Burgundy hybrid type)?   Just let me know and I'll be happy to send Crinum seedlings.  I crawled about on the ground to salvage Marcelle's crop of C. scabrum hybrids and Burgundy hybrids last year; she was just home from the hospital (a tree fell on her) and stuck in a wheelchair.  So, the seedlings are not sorted by mother plant, but they are sorted by flowerbed.  I have 2-3 I can send, 1-yr-old and not-yet-flowered.
