Thanks, Lee. There are a few bulbs that might be of interest to PBS
members: Eucrosia bicolor (a small grouping in full bloom right now),
Proiphys amboinensis, Crinum kunthianum, a few others, including
tuberous aroids. Most bulbs have been eliminated from consideration
since the main criterion for inclusion is "too tender to grow
outdoors- in So. California." Many of the plants on display are
rarely, and sometimes never, seen in a public setting. Also in bloom
now, and probably for the March tour: the jade vine (Strongylodon
macrobotrys), with hanging trusses of flowers colored like Lachenalia
viridiflora. I hope to see some of you there for one of the tours!
