Dave Lehmiller produced all kinds of intergeneric crosses between Habranthus, Zephyranthes, Sprekelia, Hippeastrum, and Rhodophiala, including several very striking tri-generic crosses. He has retired from growing Crinum and these other species and sold or turned over almost all of his stock to people like Herb Kelly. I saw some of this stock sold at very high prices (in the hundreds of dollars per bulb) right before the IBS went out of business.
