Yes, I know well who he was and that he was the importer of "Oxblood Lilies". Incidentally, I know where it was sent from. In that place there is a German colony even today. In the wild it is also a self incompatible plant. Only that his contribution cannot be compared to Dr. Flory's, the Morris Clints or Thad howard, who worked with the plants for years and were very familiar with the mutliple forms.
