All: Please read this post/email in its entirety prior to ordering so we will have no confusion for ordering and your boxes can get out to you quickly.  It will make my job a little easier.

*This BX will be open for orders until Tuesday, October 24, 2023 at 9:00 p.m. PST*

Standard rules apply for this BX:

Kindly review the list below and email me with your request(s) at
I will send a simple acknowledgement of your email.  Should you not have a response from me within a day, please resend.

Be sure to include your full name and current address.

Bulbs are $3 each.  Some of these are only one share and in short supply.

This will be a lottery (however, if you did not receive something last round, kindly advise and I will try to assure some accommodation. Also, if there is something you really are looking to receive, it helps for me to know this as well.)

You must be current in your membership and you must be up-to-date on BX/SX charges. If you are uncertain, feel free to check with Jane McGary or Arnold Trachtenberg.


Orders should be paid upon receipt through the PBS website at:

Please be sure to reference the BX number above, this helps us with accounting.
You are still free to send payment via check if that is your preference.

No orders to anywhere but the US and (sometimes) Canada can be entertained at this point.  We cannot furnish the appropriate phyto docs to other countries.

Thank you as always to our current donors.  Be advised that any and all mistakes on spelling are likely mine.  If donors see an issue with their listed item, please feel free to chime in.

here's some notes on my donations: 

116 Habranthus robustus - I think this was received as Rhodophiala bifida AGS SX68#3923, but since this pot was involved in Amaryllipocalypse it could be a tag mix-up and actually be AGS SX67#2842.

117 Habranthus sp. AGS SX67#2843 - I think this is H. tubispathus.

118 Habranthus tubispathus - unsure of source, likely Habranthus robustus 'Aureus' from AGS SX67#2846; or possibly PBS BX424#4 Habranthus tubispathus, typical Texas form, from Fred Thorne

119 Ledebouria socialis - from Green Spring Gardens c. 1999

120 Ornithogalum longebracteatum/Albuca bracteata - from the discount rack of the local garden center c. 2020

121 & 122 Romulea rosea SRGC SX71#3322 & Romulea pratensis SRGC SX71#3320 - unsure of ID on these, both look similar to me, are tall (for Romulea) with small, long-stemmed purplish flowers and intricate green/silver patterning on reverse. Set a lot of seed - there may be some in with the corms.

123 Zephyranthes concolor AGS SX66#5031

124 Zephyranthes drummondii AGS SX66#5032

125 Zephyranthes morrisclintii NARGS SX18-19#2179

157 Acis tingitana PBS BX468#5 Jane McGary

AGS = Alpine Garden Society
SRGC = Scottish Rock Garden Club
NARGS = North American Rock Garden Society*

*Per Laura Serowicz, NARGS seed exchanges are usually notated as the donation year. I put 18-19 in case others do it differently!


Items 102-115 on this BX list were supplied by me rather than Mark Akimoff.
