Once again my Manfreda virginica isn't going to bloom this year when my
other Manfreda & Polianthes bloom.  I have been trying for about 7 years to
repeat some of Jon Lindstroms crosses, to no avail.

Manfreda maculosa is now in bloom on my windowsill.  Does anyone have M.
virginica pollen they could send me?  I'd like to try crossing it with
Polianthes tuberosa, too.  Does anyone have pollen of that available?

I lost my Polianthes tuberosa 2 years ago in winter.  I replaced it with
the Polianthes 'Super Gold' which didn't bloom last year, but might this
fall.  I bought 3 bulbs and each one produced a dozen+ offsets.  Now that's
