Hi, gang.


>>3. Corms of Moraea (Homeria) collina


FYI, my understanding is that we can't distribute Moraea / Homeria collina
interstate in the US.  It's legal to ship within California, but you can't
import it and you can't ship it interstate.


The US government (but not California's) has classified all the former
Homerias as invasive.  I don't necessarily agree in gardening terms, but
they were worried about keeping out cattle feed from Australia that was
contaminated with Homeria seed.  The fear was that if that got spread around
on the ground we could end up with Homerias escaping into pastures.  Since
they're poisonous, that's an issue.


I don't know if it's legal to send Homerias from the US to a destination
outside the US.
