Dear Jim and all-

This plant is one that I have not been able to place with a name with any
certainty but I can be sure it is not Crinum oliganthum. .....

  Most of these small or smaller species of
Crinum are harder to find but available in cultivation.
Crinum purpurascens
Crinum hanitrae
Crinum lavrani
Crinum razafindratsiraea
Crinum bracteatum
Crinum caribaeum
With hybrids I would consider Ms. Nancy, Zan Gypsy and the C. oliganthum
hybrid Menehume, which are all compact plants

Dear Alani,
	Thanks so much for your review of this whole group of Crinum. 
Most are totally new to me and some things I might add to my wish 
list.  It seems that a small Crinum that could bloom nicely in a gall 
pot would be a valuable horticultural product some day.

		Best wishes.	 	Jim
