Jim I remember Park carrying seed for H. calyptratum!  Thinking back this is amazing since it is not really very easy to get ahold of now.  I can't believe they were selling Worsleya seed!  What a hoot!

  This is another one of those plants which, believe it or not, Park Seeds sold 
  decades ago (back when they were selling Worsleya seed). I grew one from their 
  seed but lost it before it flowered. A friend had one which he had grown from 
  seed and it did flower. I remember the scent as odd and wax-like (I realize that 
  that's not too helpful as a description; sorry). 

  I've probably told that story before on this list; maybe it's time for me to 
  retire  since I'm into re-runs now.
