Thank you, but I do not know Janis's e-mail address or anything about him.
I just know, that he is selling top rarities of bulbs.

  Janis Ruksans is selling Symplocarpus this year, with a lovely picture of it 
  on the cover of his catalogue. For some reason it doesn't seem to do well in 
  England - not sure why not - and one very seldom sees it here. The best 
  example I know is at Kew. On the other hand, Lysitchiton americanum is a 
  terrible weed in some watercourses.
