Dear All,

I got this from Lee yesterday, but wasn't home long enough to forward it to 
the group.

Item 6. Others have already corrected the spelling, and described it. I 
used the spelling that was used when I got the seeds. So I'm just 
propagating the error.

Items 7, 11, 12, 13. I can't remember the specifics of each kind, except 
that the buds of Z. primulina are beautiful shade of pink that open up to a 
pale chiffon pink with veins. It flowers prolifically for me. I think Z. 
minima are these small rain lilies on short stems on small plants.

Item 8. Alberto already described this. I think these seeds are from plants 
I grew from seed he donated in the past.

Item 9. Tall flower stalk with many branches that get covered in small 
star-shaped yellow flowers.

Item 10. To me looks like your typical Manfreda with variegated maroon 
spots on the leaves with a very tall flower scape that has those odd shaped 
flowers with enormous stamen. Related to tuberose, but I didn't detect any 
scent in these.

Item 14. Got this bulb at a Univ. of Calif. Irvine bulb sale a few years 
ago. It is just the typical pink V. bracteata.

Item 15. I have a bulb that is labelled "Veltheimia bracteata rosealba 
selfed". However it turned out to be a solid pink. These seed are from this 
pink flower. I don't know the genetics of Veltheimia to be able to say 
whether any of these seed will produce the odd rosealba or not.
