Hmm - I am pretty sure Paul Christian also got his sp Aus bulbs from Charles Craib. Unless there was some mistake on Paul's part (since I trust Charle's identification), I am more confident in thinking the sp Aus I got from rareplants is the same as those previously offered.
As for ernestii-ruschii, it's considered to be haemanthoides now. That said, I'd really like more clarification regarding the various Boophone strains, ranges, and habits - but I don't think a molecular genetically-minded grad student has decided to focus on the genus yet.

> Mine came directly from Aus, same as the plants from Guy Wrinkle. Charles Craib also offered bulbs from the same area.
> South of Aus, the Boophone formerly known as ernestii-ruschii can be found. I wonder what happened to that name?
