Dear All,

I just found the descriptions that Jim Waddick sent with his donation to BX
197. Those who ordered these items, which are in the mail as of Saturday
morning, will find this information useful. Also, these items are  still
available if anyone  is interested. Email me privately at
if you want some.
Thanks again to Jim.

From Jim Waddick:
1. Zephyranthes candida - This is the most common and easiest Zephyranthes
for beginners. Flowers are large single and white. Not quite hardy here, but
pretty likely in Zone 6/7 and warmer. Some bulbs are blooming size, but
these are mixed in size.

	Seeds of

	2. Lilium formosanum  -Tall Form. My plants originated from seed
from the J.C. Raulston Arboretum, Raleigh, NC. Plants can reach to 7 feet,
even taller in milder climates. Seeds can produce blooming (though shorter)
plants the first year with care. Flowers are large, typical white lily form
and deliciously scented in the evening. Easy.

	3. Lilium leichtlinii (aka L. tigrinum) diploid form. This is the
common 'Tiger Lily'. Most cultivated tiger lilies are sterile tetraploids,
but this is  the less common diploid form that produces fertile seed. I
think I have supplied stem bulbils in the past too. 
This plant can be somewhat weedy in producing seedlings, but they are easy
to control.  The plant looks like the typical Tiger Lily.

Best wishes,

Dell Sherk, PBS BX
