Why don't I tell y'all about all of my plants of interest, even if some
don't fall into the category of bulbs.  I live in a SE US 7b/8a and I
have what someone coined as "zonal denial".  My theme is tropical so
here it goes.

Crinum oliganthum 
Crinum asiaticum
Crinum erubescens-started with just a little bit 3 years ago, now I'm
covered in it.  I love it though.
Crinum 'unknown pink cultivar I "borrowed" from a public planting'
Crinum 'unknown white cultivar I "borrowed" from a public planting'
And killed a Crinum americanum

I'm looking to acquire many more this year including X Amarcrinum. I
have a relatively new home and haven't had much time to collect.

I also have...
Lycoris "forget the species...garden variety red"
Hippaestrum hybrids -various
Crocus speciosus
Tulipa 'cynthia'
Several Colocasia
Lots of gingers...
Dyckia platyphylla X something seedlings (supposed to be pretty hardy,
and I have it in a great microclimate)
Ficus afghanistanica
Musa basjoo
M. sikkimensis 'red tiger'
M. itinerans
M. 'Raja Puri'
M. 'Saba'- 16' of trunk and full of fruit and flowers, what a beauty
M. velutina
Jubaea chiliensis (unplanted)
Washingtonia filifera
Sabal bermudana
Sabal minor
Sabal minor Louisiana
Sabal palmetto
Rhapidophyllum hystrix
Chamaedorea radicalis
Trachycarpus fortunei
Quercus myrsinifolia
Bambusa 'Alphonse Karr'
Phyllostachys heterocycla pubescens
P. vivax
P. nigra 'henon'
Amorphophallus konjac (I think, good size with lots of offsets, but no
flowers yet.  Maybe next year.)

...and lots of other stuff and seeds coming along.  Hope that wasn't too
painful.  BTW excuse the spelling I'm not really looking behind and
spell check will barf on the botanical names.

Hey there,

My name is Steve and I'm a plantaholic.  Actually I'm a crinumaholic.  I
just signed up for the list yesterday and I'm psyched to read about
from folks as enthused as I am.  BTW Other plants of interest...Palms,
Gingers, aroids and anything that flowers when other people's landscapes
look dreadful ( I live in Georgia, USA so by late July most people's
look tired).

Glad to be joining Y'all,
