Please read all the notes below as there are some differences for SX4.

The items below have been donated by our members and friends to be shared.

Notes for SX 4:

1)      Items new for SX4 start at 660.

2)     You may also order any items from SX1-3 that are still available 
(items 401 to 659).
     Please put all items you want into a single list, regardless of 
which SX they are

3)     SX1 items (401-469) are now half price ($1.00 US per packet).

If you are interested in obtaining some of these items, please email me 

Please put "SX4" in the subject line. This will help ensure your email 
goes into the right
folder. Please include your shipping address (even if you've provided it 

It is better to FORWARD this email to the above address rather than 
attempting to REPLY to it
as your reply will probably go to the entire PBS list, and since my mail 
program will sort
private replies ahead of replies to the list, this will cause your 
request to be processed
later. As requests are filled first-come-first-served, replying to the 
list will reduce your
chance of receiving items that are in short supply.

You may request 1 or 2 packets of any item. Specify the quantity (1 or 
2) and the item number.
Please include your shipping address (even if you've provided it 
previously). When you
receive your seeds, you will find enclosed a statement of what you owe 
the PBS treasurer
($2.00 US per packet, $1.00 US per packet for SX1 items, + shipping).

Many of you are members of the PBS mailing list, which is free, but are 
not members of the
Pacific Bulb Society which has a yearly membership charge. ONLY PBS 
IN THIS SX. If you are not a member, please consider joining so that you

dozen accessions,

                             A good form with large waxy white trumpets 
with good scent.
                             After the first flowering it produced a 
second shoot but the
                             flowers aborted due to bad weather.

575    Zantedeschia aethiopica            UU    Zantedeschia aethiopica 
summer growing hardy form. Given to me
                             by John Grimshaw, it was collected in 2002 
on Sani Pass, near
                             Sani Pass Hotel, remained a single crowned 
plant with only very
                             few offsets but has very small white flower 
on long tube but the
                             leaves are very large and beautiful, a 
large clump of it must be
                             spectacular. No other Zantedeschia was in 
flower at this time so
                             the seeds should come true. There is a 
second clone which is less
                             vigorous and has not flowered so far. It 
definitely behaves like
                             a summer grower and has been hardy with a 
good mulch so far. Also
                             it does not mind hot summer weather whereas 
the widely available
                             form "Crowborough" never performed with me, 
it went dormant in
                             hot summer weather. I will sow some of the 
seeds myself to have
                             more plants of this beauty.
