I am not a member of PBS, but I send donations to the BX anyway.  I got
sooooo many lovely things from PBS BX in the past that I want to share with
them when I have something neat to offer.   Soon I'll donate seeds of
Ennealophus euryandrus, Trimezia steyermarkii, and rhizomes of Seemannia
nematanthodes.  :-)    I'm just waiting for the last seed pods to ripen.
