Lilly seeds and bulbs

You could probably get seeds through the PBS seed exchange of L. formosanum.  I know that here in Texas every seed that hits the ground comes up - they can be flowering inside one year's time.  

Blooming time for these lilies hasn't arrived yet.

Thank you for the advice.  Anybody know anyone supplying seeds/bulbs that I 
can get into Mexico?
