Specify the NUMBERS of the items which you would like; do not specify
quantities.  Availability is based on a first come, first served system.
When you receive your seeds/bulbs you will find included with them a

treasurer for you order. Each item costs US$2.00 to cover first-class

Pacific BX 15:

From Lee Poulsen:

1. Seed of Calostemma purpurea (limited quantities)
2. Seed of Nerine sarniensis, scarlet (limited quantities)
3. Bulbs of Zephryanthes 'Ajax'  (limited quantities)
4. Bulbs of Zephyranthes 'LaBuffarosea'

From Dell Sherk:

5. Offsets of mixed Hymenocallis (Ismene) cvs including narcissiflora,
'Sulphur Queen' and 'Advance'
6. Small clumps of Polianthes tuberosa, mostly single.

I grow both of these outside (Zone 6) in warm weather and use them as cut
flowers. The Hymenocallis bloom in early summer and the tuberoses in the
late summer. Both like much light, heat, and water, and I have had success
giving them a drink of manure tea several times during the summer. I dig
them after they have been hit by frost in autumn and store them dry till
next May. Both are highly fragrant.

From Charles Hardman:

7. Lapeirousia enigmata
8. Moraea pavonia lutea
9. Moraea thompsonii, tiny plant
10. Moraea villosa
11. Moraea sp.
12. Moraea polyanthos (formerly Homeria lilacina)

Thank you, Lee and Charles !!

Best wishes,

--Dell Sherk, Director, Pacific BX
