I apologize that I didn't mention this nursery back when that 
discussion was going on. I thought I had, but I guess I didn't. (I did, 
however, send the info to Jim Shields to be added to his massive list 
of bulb sources <>.) I 
tried to order some Nemastylis from him last year, but by the time I 
sent in my request, someone had gone and bought out his entire 
available stock.

I just ordered some of the N. geminiflora last week and he (Ron Craw) 
sent them off to my brother yesterday. BTW, the nursery is located in 
Austin, TX (where I grew up) so it must be a good place...! One caveat 
is that they can't send anything to states that require phytosanitary 
certificates (such as California). (I also just ordered from Yucca Do 
and they charged me an additional $5 for a phyto.)

Ron is very responsive via email.

I can tell you more after the bulbs arrive.
