too, in case I don't already have it. Availability is based on a first come,
first served system. When you receive your seeds/bulbs you will find,
included with them, a statement of how much money (usually $2.00/share of
seeds or $3 -$5/share of bulbs)(cash, check, or Pay Pal to
<pbs.treasury@verizon.net>; no money orders, please) you should send the PBS
treasurer. Postage and packaging charges are added.

     Many of you are subscribers to this pbs elist which is free, but are
not members of the Pacific Bulb Society which has a yearly membership
charge. THIS BX OFFERING IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO MEMBERS of the Pacific Bulb

>From Guy L'Eplattenier:

1. Seed of Lapiedra martinezii "I grow them in my garden at El Perell├│,
Catalu├▒a, spanish med. coast, but they come from along the road to Cabo de
La Nao, Javea, Provincia de Alicante, where they grow in clumps under Pinus
Halepensis. ( they also grow in full sunshine in the cliffs next to the sea,
but more one by one)I have them here half shade under the same pine trees
and little by little they form a nice group of 20/30 bulbs now.They
naturalize and I put more in various places.They have nice dark green leaves
with a silvery midrib, they disappear beginning of the summer and white
stary flowers begin blooming end of the summer ( same time as Urginea
Maritima) , then rapidly form black seeds to get them ready for the october
rains.They are highly drought resistant , wind resistant, salt resistant and
cold resistant till -5 celsius... but maybe on the dry side... quite an
interesting jewel for mediterranean gardens, in fact. Seeds do germinate
easily."
