Dear All,

     The items listed below have been donated by PBS members for
sharing. If you are interested in obtaining some of them, please email me
PRIVATELY at <>. Include "BX 30" in the subject line.
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
statement of how much money (cash or check) you should send the PBS
treasurer for your order. This is a charge to defray
costs for packing and first-class postage. It is a good idea to include your
snail mail address too, in case I don't already have it.
    Some of you are members of the PBS discussion forum but not members of
THE PBS. Consider joining the PBS so that you can take advantage of future
offers such as this. Go to our website: . Or
contact me at
    If you would like to donate seeds or bulbs/corms to the PBS, please send
clean, clearly labeled material to: Dell Sherk, PO Box 224, Holicong, PA,

their donations.

From Mary Sue Ittner:

1. Moraea sp. These could be M. aristata, M. tripetala, or M. bellendenii.
They all were in a bed that I am redoing and I can't tell which is which.
Winter growers from South Africa, lots

2. Oxalis depressa MV 4871--2km inland from mouth of Kleinie Braak River;
1.25" white flowers, wide overlapping petals, large leaves, dull purple
beneath, winter growing, blooms late fall, early winter for me

3. Oxalis MV 5630A, lavender pink flowers, Vanrhynshoek, fall blooming,
growing, found in dark red heavy soil

4. Oxalis luteola MV5667 1.5" brt yellow flowers, 13 km s of Nieuwodtville.
Winter growing. This species has never bloomed for me in the time that I
had it, but maybe would do better in another climate--Winter grower

5. Oxalis obtusa (copper)--This one also has never bloomed for me so I am
passing it on. Winter growing

6. Oxalis obtusa MV 5051--2 " lt. copper-orange, darker veining, yellow
center, Vanrhynshoek. This one is one of my best performers and I love it!
Winter grower For me it blooms for months on end between December and April

7. Oxalis obtusa 7087-- 2" pink flrs with large yellow center (what I have
looks more peachy orange, but is very pretty). This is a late winter, early
spring bloomer, another good performer

8. Oxalis zeekoevleyensis--Small plant, purple flowers with yellow center,
fall blooming, winter growing

9. Triteleia hyacinthina--Spring blooming, California native, winter growing

10. Tulipa praestans--pretty red flowers, winter growing. These probably are
not blooming sized bulbs

Thank you, Mary Sue!
