Diana,if H. anzaldoi and evansiae are crossed would you now consider that still evansiae or a primary hybrid?  Mark Zukaitis,You can look into Diana's website telos rare bulbs and see the list available. I think she is sold out on it, but she may respond if she has any..
regards all,Radha.

 Diana - if you are in the United States, would you be interested in selling a bulb or offwet of Hippeastrum evansiae?  I would very much like to grow it and other Hippeastrum species.
