From Mary Sue Ittner:


6. Cyrtanthus elatus x C. montanus offset bulblets - I've offered these
before. They form around the big bulbs, but can be grown on to one day have
beautiful orange-red flowers, evergreen

7. Oxalis obtusa (coral)

8. Oxalis obtusa (pink)

9. Oxalis obtusa MV 4719d --   S of Laingsburg.  1? pale coppery pink,
center, dark veins, dark ctr ring.

10. Oxalis obtusa MV 7085 Deep coppery-pink, yellow throat

11. Oxalis palmifrons -grown for the leaves, mine have never flowered, but
the leaves I like, supposedly has a better chance of blooming if planted

12. Oxalis polyphylla var heptaphylla MV6396 Vanrhynsdorp. Succulent
thread-like leaves. Winter growing, blooms fall

13. Oxalis purpurea (white) winter growing, long blooming, but beware of
planting in the ground in a Mediterranean climate unless you don't care if
it takes over as it expands dramatically, a lot.

14. Oxalis semiloba - large bulbs and I'm growing them in a big pot so am
hoping to finally get some blooms

15. Oxalis versicolor --lovely white with candy stripe on back, winter

15. Oxalis zeekoevleyensis blooms early fall, lavender flowers, sometimes
flowers as early as August

17. Tulipa clusiana - small bulblets of true red and white version

18. Tulipa turkestanica - may not be blooming size, but in my climate seems
to divide more than bloom, sadly

Thank you, Bonaventure, Arnold, Jim, and Mary Sue !!

Best wishes,
