A bit off topic, Beschorneria

Hi Gang,

I don't think Beschorneria qualify as geophytes, but I grow some among my 
bulbs and find they fit right in as long as they have good drainage. 
Sometimes, Poltianthes (a relative) are accorded geophyte status.

Anyway, I wonder if folks out there have a few seeds of hardy Beschorneria 
types (hybrids are fine), or know where to order such seeds.  A few years 
ago I got some seeds from Peckerwood Garden, but I've never seen seed 
offered again.  However, I did get some from a garden email friend in New 


Conroe Joe (Hot and humid in Conroe, more rain, the Crinum seem to love this 
weather as long as they don't get leaf spots).
