Dear all,

I am looking for bulbs or seeds of the various Sprekelia "species" for 
breeding experiments.  these are things I sdtarted 25 years ago and 
lost.  I want to rebuild my Sprekelia germplasm collection and do some new 

I have S. formosissima 'Orient Red' (a.k.a. 'Harrison's Orientred') and a 
very few offsets of S. howardii as well as Haemanthus, Scadoxus, 
Hippeastrum, Crinum, Nerine, etc. species to offer in trade.  Or I will 

I am looking especially for bulbs of Sprekelia 'Peru' , S. glauca, and some 
of the early Thad Howard hybrids or selections from S. formosissima.

Wild collected seeds from Sprekelia formosissima would be of great interest
