Hey all:

I am new to this list, having recently discovered it
while researching a newly discovered interest in the
genus Hymenocallis. 

My question is: does anyone know where to obtain a
start of Hymenocallis speciosa?  I don't know if this
is the correct name for the plant anymore, but it is
supposed to be an evergreen, late fall-blooming
species from the Caribbean.  It is known for its spicy
fragrance and sometimes called "Winter Spice" or
"White Spice."  

I recently obtained a start of Hymenocallis tubiflora,
a species from Brazil that is reputedly similar, but I
also want the H. speciosa.  Can anyone point me in the
right direction, or even be willing to sell me an
offset from one of his/her plants?
