Hi Gang,

Jay Yourch does lovely writing, about many topics.  Marcelle Sheppard and I 
enjoy reading his posts.  Recently Jay wrote about Crinum "Shreck," the 
wonderful crinum that came from the Shreck family.  I don't know if it is 
the same as Crinum x 'Carol Abbot', and Jay  nicely touches on this mystery.

 Marcelle and I are determined to "keep up with Jay."  (a very fun and 
friendly competition)
Check our article on Crinums.

The problem with writing about crinums is that people ask where to obtain 
them.  Crinums are a bit pricey and not offered on every corner.  I listed 
some possible mailorder sources, but I wonder if I've missed some vendors. 
Drop me a note if you can recommend other crinum sources to add to my list 
in the article.

C. x powellii has 10 scapes, all topped with pale, flimsy, flowers.  It is 
time to rent a tractor and pull that particular clone out of the ground. 
Even with 10 scapes it is barely noticeable in the garden.  Give me Shreck 
any day.
