I argued with myself whether to send this e-mail but
despite the fact that I might be out of line or will
embarrass my self I decided to send it anyway. I am
looking to obtain Zephyranthes and Habranthus seed. I
hope that my request is justified by the goal I am
working towards. I hope to create a checklist of rain
lily species and hybrids. My collection has just begun
and I have purchased whatever I could find but I would
like to obtain seed of plants from various sources so
that I can compare and note degrees of variation
within and between species.  To prove that I am crazy
enough to actually do this I will point to several
checklists that I have prepared for sections of the
American Iris Society. Most of the work involves
literature reviews but it is very helpful to gather as
much first hand experience as possible. I also will be
seeking advice and council from the established rain
lily experts but I would like very much to grow as
many of the species and cultivars as possible. Seed
from as many species as I can obtain will help with my
understanding and will make the result better. Please
e-mail me if you have seeds that may help.
