For those of you where winter shipping of live plants is a thing, I have some goodies that are ready for a new home. Free shipping to the south and west USA. Email me directly: trolleypup@gmail.com I'll collect responses over the weekend and ship next week.

Varieties that are still solidly dormant will be made available later.

Nerine filifolia...not quite dormant, but lots of them, a near evergreen summer grower.

Andean tuber crops, some are starting to sprout, the ones in solid dormancy can wait. Most of these require cool summers, and will not thrive with warm/hot days and nights. Summer growers, with a very long season (tuber production begins around the solstice, dormancy late November into January). 

Yacon - Smallanthus sonchifolius, the exception, will handle warmer conditions. I have a few, the bud tubers don't store well (the storage tubers do though). Dahlia style growth.

Ulluco - Ullucus tuberosus, bright colored tubers
 - (pink): elongated bright pink tubers
 - Moclips: round pink tubers faded to green

Mashua - Tropaeolum tuberosum, viny nasturtium relative, red/orange flowers in fall
 - (light green with purple eyes): many

Oca - Oxalis tuberosus, very vigorous floppy with a few yellow flowers, few to many
 - (red)
 - White Salmon
 - Hopin Alba
 - (cream with magenta eyes)
 - Amarillo
 - Bolivian Red
 - Twilight
 - (dark red with yellow)
