Bulb Folks:


We had some nice surprises today.more lycoris buds emerging, (L. 'Hill
Beyond Hill'), another xHippeastrelia 'Durga Pradhan' seedling, and the
strangest, a bloom on a clump of Zephyranthes atamasco.  As any good breeder
would do, we had our way with it this morning.  This prompts the
question.are there any zeph hybrids with Z. atamasco and the summer
flowering species?
