Hi Gang,

This came up last year, but herein I try again.

If anyone has stock of the yellow-flowered form within Texas, I'd sure like 
to arrange a trade for seeds or corms.  

It is a great plant for this area (just north of Houston) because, while it 
is a winter grower it is also very tolerant of summer rains.  And, if you grow 
it in a pot, you can just put the whole pot away for 4 months in the heat and 
wet of summer.

(Still cool, certainly not cold.  Crinum seedlings still trying to grow, but 
I've cut off water for cacti and succulents 2-4 weeks ago--they try to grow 
during warm spells and then suffer terrible frost damage at 25 F unless kept 
bone dry).
