Thanks everyone for your input. Well, I order had been
placed and I ended up with 2000+ bulbs again somhow. 
Anyway, here's what I got:

100 Allium christophii
100 Allium shubertii
100 Cammassia quamash
25 Colchicum 'Violet Queen'
25 Colchicum 'Waterlily'
150 Crocus goulimyi
150 Crocus speciosus 'Oxonian'
200 Crocus flavus 'Golden Yellow'
200 Crocus tomm. 'Ruby Giant'
300 Eranthis hymenalis
10 Eremerus 'Cleopatra'
10 Eremerus 'Romance'
25 Frittilaria imp. 'Rubra Maxima'
100 Glad. comm. var byzaninus
100 Hyacinthoides hisp. 'Excelsior'
100 Ipheion 'Rolf Feidler'
300 Muscari armenicaum (I know it's common but I love
it and more importantly, so does my aunt)
50 Narcissus albus plenus odoratus
100 N. 'Cassata'
400 N. 'Marieke' (it was either this or 'Sweetness'
and I went with the larger plant, any thoughts on
200 Tulipa backeri 'Lilac Wonder'
100 T. batalinii 'Bronze Charm'
100 T. humilus 'Eastern Star'
50 T. humilus alba coerula Ocutata
100 T. 'Oratorio'
200 T. tarda
100 T. whitalii

Well, I guess I stand corrected, that is almost 3400
bulbs. Well, I will be a busy little beaver this fall.
I might need to rethink a few of those. 

I really want to get the Eemerus and Fritallarias to
do well. The Frits I have tried them in several spots
over the years and they never even emerge and if they
do, it is one leaf or two and then poof. 
The only Eremerus that have done well are the ones
that my uncle planted after I had left. I think it is
the only thing in his garden that he has personally
planted. Go figure. Anyway, he loves them, so, he gets

Back to the autumn crocus. I've looked for those that
have been recommended but everyone else seems to be
either sold out of the fall varieties already or they
are not offered. If anyone knows where I can get these
wholesale at this time of the year, email me privately
and let me know. Thanks.
