Dear Bill and All, Re: Bill's question about why I recommended Ixia dubia over I. maculata on my recommendations to UC/D greenhouse. I can't recall why I chose one over the other, especially since John Bryan(JB) had a photo in 'Bulbs' of I. maculata, but not I. dubia. In general, I was "light" on Ixia selections because JB noted they were not considered frost hardy. Please note, I. maculata was on my personal list. Ernesto and I frequently share seeds. Clever this. Bill, this does not relieve you of sending me info on Massonia. I would appeciation getting growing information for: Daubenya, Gethyllis, Hessea, Massonia and Strumeria species. Joyce E.
