Hi Jim,

Unfortunately  it is very familiar in my memory even if it was nearly 20 
years ago.  I avoided bulbs for a long time after that.  I'm back at it 
again, still trying to find sources for many of the rare Hymenocallis I 
lost then, not to mention the even rarer Hippeastrum species.  I think they 
were 'Pax', 'Herlios' and 'Icon' if I remember correctly.

Where bulbs are concerned, it is indeed a small world.   People I 
remembered as being high school students are greying professors now.....
