Hello all

I am new to this site. I live in Southern California on a mountain at elevation 2000 feet in an arid climate. This is a huge difference from my early years spent in the bayous of Southern Louisiana, where my tastes in flowering bulbs was shaped. I am fond of amaryllis, crinums, clivias, zephyranthes, but most especially hymenocallis.  

All of these bulbs do well in the fast draining decomposed granite soil of Kagel Canyon. Ever so slowly, parts of my yard (well protected from rabbits, gophers and deer) are starting to look like my Southern Louisiana childhood "home."
While that is all well and good, I also have an obsessive nature and want to collect and grow as many varieties of these bulbs as is available to me. 

With that in mind, my current obsession is Hymenocallis Imperialis (BIG FATTY).  I hope that someone here will have some to share. 
I am currently growing Hymenocallis: coronaria, liriosme, littoralos and festalis, with plans to share these bulbs in the future as the bulblets mature.

Thanks for reading,
