Hi all,

The Texas Rhodophiala bifida is very hardy, even up here in the wet Midwest.

I would like to try breeding some other colors than oxblood red and select 
for hardiness here in Indiana.  Mind you, I like the oxblood color very 
much!  I just want more colors, in addition.

Are there any other Rhodophiala that are likely to be fairly hardy in a 
cold, wet, winter?  Where can I get a few bulbs or seeds of such?   I will 
buy or trade.  If you have some possible bulbs or seeds for my purposes, 
please contact me privately
