Dear Friends,
	I am just back from a visit to SC and GA.

	In SC I saw many stands of blooming Crinum asiaticum - at 
least I think that is what it was - planted in the landscapes on 
Sullivan's Island, just south of Charleston. Is this species sterile? 
I saw no seed produced.

	And in Atlanta GA I went to a fascinating nursery called 
'Randy's' in Lawrenceville, just a few miles NE of downtown. They had 
pots labelled Crinum oliganthum (I think), but I was not familiar 
with this name. The plants were TINY  (for a Crinum) . Leaves may 
have been 5 or 6 inches long and a clump of plants fit nicely in a 4 
inch size pot. No flowers present, but all other plants seemed 
correctly labelled.

	Any one have any Crinum info about these two species?

	Appreciate your shared wisdom. 		Best		Jim W.
