Dear All,

to be shared.

  If you are interested in obtaining some of them, please email me PRIVATELY
at <ds429@comcast.net>. Include "BX 336" in the subject line. 

        Specify the NUMBERS of the items which you would like; do not
specify quantities. It is a good idea to include your snail mail address,
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
Society. If you are not a member, consider joining so that you can take
advantage of future offers such as this. Go to our website:

         If you would like to donate seeds or bulbs/corms to the PBS,(Donors
will receive credit on the BX for the cost of postage for their donations.),
please send CLEAN, clearly labeled plant materials to:

            I WILL REPLY TO YOU WITHIN 24 HRS OF MY RECEIPT OF YOUR ORDER.

From Stephen Putman: (SEEDS)

1. Hippeastrum striatum

From Arnold Trachtenberg:

SEEDS: 

2.  Narcissus cantabricus clusii.  Per TPL and IPNI, there is no listing for
this.  Per TPL, N. clusii is a synonym of N. cantabricus var. cantabricus.
Per IPNI, N. cantabricus and N. clusii are two separate species.

3. Narcissus romieuxii

4.  Narcissus romieuxii var mesatlanticus.  Per TPL and IPNI, there is no
listing for this.  Also no listing under N. mesatlanticus.
PBS lists it as a synonym for N. romieuxii ssp. romieuxii var. romieuxii
(also not a valid name per TPL & IPNI), but does not indicate where it is
validly described.The Alpine Garden Society states, in part, ".or the
dubiously distinct variety mesatlanticus.."
